According to Plastic Oceans, over 10 million tons of plastic is dumped into the ocean every year and 50% of the plastic products being made are one-use products.
Windshield washer fluid jugs are typically only used once and if we were to do a survey, the vast majority of people would say they do not recycle their empty jugs. Now there's a way to refill your empty windshield washer fluid jugs.
5 ESSO gas stations around the West Island have a windshield washer fluid refill station. To refill your jug it costs just $2.99 plus tax for 3.78 liters. The employees at the gas station will unlock the giant refill receptacle for you to use. There are also many empty jugs beside the basin of windshield washer fluid that can be used if you forgot your jug.
These refill stations can be found at:
