Since the program launched a decade ago, the LCBO has reduced annual waste by more than 6 million kg. Our Lightweight Bottle Program continues to broaden and today, includes all glass bottles sized 1000-1500mL and 750ml glass bottles with a retail value less than $16.00 This program not only  reduces waste and carbon emissions through more sustainable distribution, it also supports the health and well-being of our Retail and Supply Chain employees through the ergonomic benefits associated with reduced case weight handling. Given our success to date, we will continue to evolve the program with maximum weight limits for more glass bottles. By April 2022 these limits will be in place for all products retailing for less than $19.00.
