About Us

Our Mission

We exist as a community-based, not-for-profit service under Signature Support Services to meet the individual needs and choices of persons with disabilities.

Our Vision

We strive to lead the way in enriching the lives of persons with developmental disabilities by being the beverage container recycling provider of choice in Grande Prairie.

Who We Are

Recycle Plus is a beverage container recycling company in Grande Prairie, Alberta. We buy beverage containers that have been registered with the BCMB by refunding the deposit paid by purchasers in retail locations around Alberta.

We are committed to providing the best service possible through state-of-the-art depots, seasoned personnel and an interest in innovation and new technologies. On our busiest days, our depots serve more than 450 customers!

Our Depots

Our PLUS I and II Depots are the bottle depots of choice for most Grande Prairie residents. Plus II is the first depot in North America to use automated counting technology, allowing us to process a large number of containers quickly and efficiently - reducing the amount of time it takes to serve you, our valued customers. In 2019, Plus I moved to a much larger building and also started using automated counting technology!

Both depots feature lots of parking stalls (including designated handicap stalls), a large foyer, sorting stations and friendly staff - all the necessary ingredients for superior customer service.

Both Depot are also able to handle our commercial clients and our fundraising programs (such as bottle drives).

Our History

Signature Support Services purchased its first bottle depot in 1980 as an initiative to provide employment opportunities for individuals with developmental disabilities.

As the city of Grande Prairie continued to grow, so did its recycling needs. In 2004, we applied for and were granted a license to operate a second bottle depot. It took us nearly two years to site and develop the new depot, but the time and hassle were well worth it. When we finally opened our second depot, we were able to proudly unveil a state-of-the-art facility.

Our PLUS II Depot continues to pave the way for the recycling industry and is the first depot in North America to implement automated sorting and counting technology in its front- and back-end operations.
