2015 ENVIRO-DEPOTTM Contest

Nova Scotians #RecycledToWin in November!

The 2015 RRFB Nova Scotia ENVIRO-DEPOT™ Photo Contest has officially come to an end. Thirty-two individuals and groups are receiving prizes for showing Nova Scotia just how they collect their bottles for a refund or how they spend that refund!

Photos from Nova Scotians were posted to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #RecycleToWin with an opportunity to win some cold hard cash! Prizes of $100 were available to seven lucky winners and prizes of $300 were available to seven lucky groups. One prize pack was also up for grabs at each ENVIRO-DEPOT™ across the province.

Nova Scotians have a strong history of recycling right at their ENVIRO-DEPOT™. They proved this through the entries that were received from all corners of the province. A true charitable nature was evident as most of the refunds were used to support local community groups or in some cases children in Haiti!

Below are the winners from each of the seven regions. Prizes will be awarded in December and early January.
