Return - It to Win - It Contest Winner

Nanaimo's Julie McQuillan Wins Grand Prize

British Columbians were busy this summer returning their empty beverage containers to participating Return-It Depots to make sure they were recycled responsibly and kept out of landfills. In addition to receiving their deposit refunds and feeling good about recycling many customers entered to win one of three eco-friendly rides. Encorp Pacific's four month 'Return-It to Win-It' contest ran from May 1 – September 5, 2011 and in that time, over 227,000 ballots were collected.

The Grand Prize winner was drawn from ballots collected at The Nanaimo Bottle Depot, who collected almost 4,600 ballots. "I'm very proud of my staff for all of the hard work they contributed to this contest. It really paid off," said Paul Shorting, Owner and General Manager of the Nanaimo Bottle Depot, who was on hand to officially hand the keys to the winner for her new Smart Car, along with staff from Encorp Pacific.

"It was another very successful year for our province wide contest to promote recycling and to promote the Return-It Depots in British Columbia," said Neil Hastie, President and CEO of Encorp Pacific. "We are very pleased that Julie was able to travel from Nanaimo to accept this Grand Prize."

Second  prize of two Vespa Scooters went to Peter Burton of Chemainus while third prize of two Norco Mountain Bikes (with helmets) was won by Samantha Soltau of Ashcroft.
