Calgary brewers implement individual producer responsibility for plastic beer can holders

Annex Ale Project and the Alberta Small Brewers Association have launched a unique recycling program specifically for plastic beer can holders. Their belief is to be as sustainable as possible and take the responsibility of recycling their packaging. Together, they have managed to reuse over 12,000 plastic beer can holders, recycle an additional 18,000 and have set up collection points throughout the province. They encourage consumers to bring their holders back to various breweries, restaurants, and retailers to be reused or recycled, rather than ending up in the landfill.  Read more.
