In Manitoba, liquor bottles are primarily recycled through a household recycling program. Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries collects an environmental levy at the point of sale on each bottle. This money is given to the Manitoba Product Stewardship Corporation who funds the program and other community recycling programs.
As per Regulation 68(1) of Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Board Regulation 68/2014 to The Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corporation Act, a retail beer vendor must accept empty beer bottles or beer cans from products purchased in Manitoba on which a refundable deposit has been paid.
