Campus Wide: The Students' Union (SU) oversees the university's beverage container recycling program. The collection of refundable beverage containers on campus draws about $40,000 in revenue annually and is used to employ nine part-time special needs staff and nine case workers from the Developmental Disabilities Resources Centre of Calgary, as well as supporting other SU sustainability initiatives.
Residences: Recycling rooms exist in all single bed residences and all recycling is collected by Calgary Commercial Recycling.
Family Residences: Beverage container recycling is available in the laundry rooms.
Olympic Oval: Beverage containers are collected by University Olympic Oval Operations staff who sort, bag and transport the refundable containers to a bottle depot. Refunds are set aside and used internally.
Hotel Alma: Guests are provided with beverage container recycling in every room. Containers are collected daily by housekeeping staff and placed in a central area for Vecova to collect for processing.
