Not sure if that is the case. Don’t know why they would produce material like this for retailers to use if they couldn’t accept milk containers.

From the Return It site:


While retailers will accept a limited quantity of milk and plant-based beverage containers, the best option is for consumers to return these containers by visiting our over 170 Return-It sites province-wide for their deposit. Only clean containers will be accepted for returns, so consumers are encouraged to rinse out containers before returning them.

We also recommend consumers confirm with their local retail location regarding the types and allowable number of containers they have the capacity to accept.

Biofuels from household waste could soon be produced in Sooke with a new multi-million-dollar facility proposed by a Calgary-based energy company.

VDQ-NRG introduced its $55-million proposal to Sooke council on Monday.

Although the company doesn’t have a plant in operation yet, it is looking at 15 properties worldwide to begin production, said James Kernaghan, vice-president of strategy for VDQ-NRG.

________________

Council members appeared enthusiastic about the project.

“This seems like a very science-fiction magic bullet,” said Coun. Jeff Bateman.

________________

VDQ-NRG has approached local property owners about the acquisition of land.

Company officials plan to visit Sooke in March to begin negotiations with the district. The project will still need to go through a formal application and regulatory process.

Kernaghan said construction could begin this year.

Headline: Sooke plans to burn all their garbage locally

Councillors: love it! Magic!



Meanwhile the company proposing it has never built or run a project. What could go wrong?

Somebody check if the husband and wife running this company previously sold cities on monorails.

Just carry over some of that industrial fire from Esquimalt and you're good to go.

I'm pretty sure you know there is no "burning" involved.

I do.  But I also know the technology they tout is not feasible for municipal/residential waste and does not exist elsewhere in that capacity.

Wasn’t our new sewage system supposed to create energy or something?

Yes back in the Seaterra days they touted the manufacture and sale of methane. The sewage treatment saga has seen a number of “sales gimmicks” come and go. To this day the CRD has not accomplished what they said they would. I think they may still be spreading the biosolids on the ground and lighting a match to the methane.

This project has been about "spreading the biosolids" since the day it was proposed.

I think I have had enough and I am just going to go back to tossing everything into the garbage. Charging families extra for milk just seems wrong especially since most people were already putting the jugs into recycling.

I assume you are being facetious but recyclable items are banned from the trash stream at the landfill.

Contributing to the waste problem just because you don't want to take the extra second to properly sort your refuse sure says a lot about you.

Same for those that have clicked "like" on this post.

They are not turning around municipal garbage trucks at the dump because they have some bottles or clean paper aboard.

Of course not but as usual it takes some personal responsibility.

I liked this post . I recycle almost everything. I take bottles back to the bottle depot actually several people know this and save bottles for me they would usually put in the blue box .What I agree with in the post it leaves a bad taste in my mouth that we are charging parents a recycling fee plus handling fee on milk . Then we turn around and say children are coming  to school hungry /without  breakfast .It’s milk for crying out loud . I have no issues with a tax on or recycling fee on other things non essential things .My grocery store only takes bottles if they are put in a clear plastic bag . 
I am not about to buy plastic bags to put bottles in to take back to the store . Charging a recycling fee plus a handing fee on milk ,milk type products in my mind is plain wrong .
