Event description: 
Alberta Depot represents one of North America’s most successful and efficient beverage container recycling partnerships. Each year Albertan’s return more than 85% of all beverage containers sold in the province, which equates to over two billion containers. Alberta Depot’s Beauty of Recycling campaign was launched in the summer of 2016, promoting the environmental, economic and social benefits of returning beverage containers to over 200 Depot’s located throughout Alberta. In partnership with CF Market Mall during Waste Reduction Week we are continuing with the Beauty of Recycling theme, Alberta Depot has commissioned local artists Jeff de Boer, Cory Barkman and Christine Pederson to create a stunning tree sculpture entitled Return. Made using recycled beverage containers, and standing at an impressive 10 plus feet tall, the sculpture represents the positive community impact from Alberta’s continued commitment to beverage container recycling. Return is available for viewing in CF Market Mall during Waste Reduction Week from October 17 to October 23. The Depot event team will be on-site all week, educating the public about the benefits of beverage container recycling in Alberta, with a fun quiz to test your knowledge on beverage container recycling and giveaways. CF Market Mall has launched some of their own new environmental initiatives prior to Waste Reduction Week which include but are not limited to:  “Zero waste zone” in the food court  Landscaping with native species to reduce irrigation needs  Participation in the Car2Go sharing program  High–efficiency, motion senor lighting  Water conserving bathroom fixtures Stop by and see it yourself during Waste Reduction Week!
