[Costco] YMMV: 40 X 500ml Kirkland brand bottled water for $2.55

Spotted at Costco St-Hubert. Not that I like buying bottled water, 'cause it's a huge waste of plastic, as most of us, have free tap water, (we have no water meter where I live!) but at this price 40 X 500ml Kirkland bottled water for $2.55 I could not miss it. It comes to a little more than $0.06 each bottle and those are great in case of emergency or for any other reason. Thought it would be great to share this hot deal with you guys.

Basically, i don't use bottles but i have some visitors who "need" it, easier to have one to give them then deal with whining.

If we have this price in Vancouver,
- product 6 cents
- eco fee 4 cents
- deposit fee 5 cents

Fees cost more than product.

In Vancouver you don't get deposit money back?

If people need these for the cottage, I totally get it, but when I see first generation Canadian families buying these by the cart load I always wonder if they know our city's water is the safest on the planet.

As they should, the environmental impact of bottled water is insane.

Like you, I offer these to my visitors when they go out. Bottles coming back from them are very low.

I just ran into this situation! I apologize if this is a stupid question but do we get the eco fee back when you return bottles?

So your guests are getting the money back. If you want the money you can ask for water when you go visit them then return for cash

Yes, but do not get the eco fee back. Eco fee is for recycling the bottle.

"Deposits are charged when products are purchased. They are returned in full when you bring back the empty container for recycling. These deposits are set through government legislation. Click here for the B.C. Government's page on Beverage Container Regulation."

No, the eco fee (Container Recycling Fee) is not returned.

"The Container Recycling Fee (CRF) is the fee Encorp charges to cover the net cost of recycling a beverage container type after any unredeemed deposits and commodity revenues for that container type have been used. The CRF varies for each beverage container category. As a not-for-profit, product stewardship agency, Encorp Pacific only charges the net cost for recovering and recycling beverage containers. The CRF reflects the current economic conditions of the drop in commodity prices and beverage volumes."

Yet the deposit refund makes the fees lower then the purchase price that the OP is complaining about.
People don't want to pay the price for their pollution but want someone else to pay it. If the customer doesn't pay it and the company doesn't pay it (and if they do it raises the price so the customer is paying it) then society pays it (which is charged to taxpayers which we all are). Then they complain about having to pay taxes...

You can't have it both ways, gotta pay the piper. As they say don't do the crime if you can't do the time.

I agree about the safety of Ontario water.
Plus for those who want extra assurance, Costco sells the large Brita pitchers and filters. The Brita goes on discount too at Costco.

From my perspective, my cost is 15 cents. Not a big deal. If they have to buy it in the tourist area locations, it usually costs $1 or more.

Don't get me wrong, I'm for both deposit and eco fee.
