CBCRA stewards are the producers and distributors of single-use, sealed, ready-to-serve beverage containers sold in Manitoba. These companies are committed to increasing beverage container recycling rates in the province. Their funding supports everything from recycling infrastructure to consumer education. As new companies emerge and are identified they, too, become stewards and participants in the CBCRA success story.
Thank you to our Stewards for the continued support of CBCRA’s efforts to provide Manitobans an effective way to recycle their beverage containers.
The 2016 Rules for Stewards have now been posted and came in effect on May 1, 2016. There are no material changes to the Rules. There are two changes to note:
- Change of year to 2016; and
- Requirement for Stewards to complete the Audit Confirmation letter and Sales Verification Process.
Please note that the fees, material categories, timing of reporting and paying of fees have not changed.
The links below provide information on the provincial legislation for obligated stewards:
Registration & Reporting
Obligated Stewards are required to achieve a 75% beverage container recovery rate in Manitoba. Beverage stewards have the option of registering with CBCRA, or they can provide their own Program Plan to the Government of Manitoba in which they satisfactorily demonstrate to the Manitoba Government how they will achieve a 75% recovery rate with a province-wide program.
Stewards participating with CBCRA need to report on volumes supplied in Manitoba on a monthly basis through the secure CBCRA reporting system.
