Consumers who purchase ready-to-serve beverages in Saskatchewan must pay two fees to the Government. One is an environmental handling charge which goes to offset the environmental cost of beverage containers. The other is a refundable deposit designed to encourage consumers to return their beverage containers for recycling.

Manufacturers and distributors selling ready-to-serve beverages in approved containers are required to be licenced by Saskatchewan Environment and Resource Management. 

The Revenue Division has prepared a bulletin to help explain how the Beverage Container Program applies in specific situations.
