cleaner and safer for stores
UBCR is a key player in the successful Michigan beverage container deposit system. Michigan's system has an unprecedented recovery rate of 97%, the highest in the nation.
UBCR's role in the deposit system is to collect, transport and process empty beverage containers for Michigan's largest retailers. UBCR is the exclusive pick-up agent for the Michigan Soft Drink Association and the Michigan Beer and Wine Wholesalers Association, picking up more than 100 million cases from 600+ stores for more than 100 wholesalers.
The beverage container deposit system enables numerous environmental benefits for all Michigan citizens:
• fewer carbon emissions
• cleaner roads, parks and beaches
• less traffic on roadways
Retailers save time and money, and enjoy cleaner and safer back room storage and sorting.
The system has been designed with accurate and precise record-keeping and accounting of deposit material, allowing greater control of scrap material for distributors.
