Allen Langdon, President and CEO of Encorp Pacific, is the guest for July's EPR Coffee Hour. Allen oversees the most successful used beverage container management program in Canada with a mandate to develop, manage and improve systems to recover used packaging and end-of-life products from consumers and ensure that they are properly recycled and not land-filled or incinerated. Through its Return-It collection network consisting of 171 privately owned Return-It depots, Encorp Pacific has routinely exceeded a 75% recovery rate for used beverage containers in the province while at the same time developing a collection network that has become the backbone for a number of other recycling programs around the province.

Prior to joining Encorp Pacific, Allen served as the Managing Director for Recycle BC, the first 100% Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) program for paper and packaging in North America where industry assumed full financial and managerial responsibility for the residential recycling system.
