Bea Fisher Enterprises (BFE) is an independent, non profit organization best known for operating Lloydminster’s only bottle depot, an environmentally friendly way to recycle refundable beverage containers. The primary mission of BFE is to create revenue generating enterprises which further funding for The Bea Fisher Centre while also creating employment opportunities for persons with disabilities and without. Bea Fisher benefits when area residents, businesses and organizations return their refundable beverage containers to the bottle depot, drop them off at our bottle donation trailer or support many worthwhile organizations which use bottle drives for their fundraising. And the community benefits by generating funds for personal use or for community organizations while reducing pressure on the Lloydminster landfill. Net revenues from all BFE programs help to enable housing, training and employment programs within The Bea Fisher Centre.
