BCMB Recognizes Alberta’s First Bottle Depot Owner on his Retirement

Posted on: February 26, 2015

Dave Green opened Alberta’s first bottle depot in Lethbridge in April 1971. He now owns two convenience stores and depots in the community and is a well-respected local businessman. Dave has seen many changes in the beverage container recycling industry and has always adapted to those changes, often leading the way for his counterparts across the province.

After nearly 44 years, Dave has decided to retire and sell his businesses. The beverage container recycling industry pioneer will be missed but has certainly earned his retirement. For more on Dave and his successful business, see the following stories:
