BC excludes milk and milk replacement containers from the deposit program, but they can be left in the curbside recycling bin for pick up.

4 liter water jug in the same kind of jug as milk though has a deposit.

There was a brand that was selling milk shelf stable in tetra paks here (maybe still there) I tried it once, tasted funny and wasn't the same so never bought it again, it was also more expensive per ML vs regular milk in the coolers.

We have milk in cartons and jugs.

500ml, 1 liter and 2 liter typically are cartons although there are 2 liter in plastic as well, 4 liters is only in jugs.

Often the 2 liter carton costs more than the 2 liter jug, but price per liter 4 is the best value, the smaller quantities costs more per liter generally.

There also smaller brands in glass bottles, and some brand called Fair Life is using different kind of bottle.

The long life Tetrapaks are still available .............. they don't need putting in the fridge until opened, so are useful as an emergency supply in pantry, earthquake emergency packs. or for camping.

UHT Milk - (also known as Shelf Stable Milk or Homogenized Milk) will keep up to 6 months unopened.. I used to keep a couple of them in my cupboard when I lived in the UK, but as I don't use milk in anything now, I haven't bothered here.

Milk will be the last of my worries in an emergency. I tried it that one time and never tried it again as I disliked the taste so much, it does not taste like regular milk at all. I drink very little milk in general, well I never drink it, I just use some in baking and on cereal.

Suppose it may not be sold at our local Nor Frills so could be why I never see it, it was Save On where I used to see back when we lived in Chilliwack and Squamish. No Frills tends to stock only fast turn over items, they are not a full service grocery store.

forgot to say that we had the SOY milk Tetrapak, not ordinary milk!!

I'm now so used to the fact that we never buy more than 1 1-litre box of 1% milk for OH every 2 weeks, if not longer (he only has it in his morning coffee). The only "milk" we buy in any quantity is the Soy and I forget to specify that sometimes. You can't freeze Soy milk ............ it says that on the box, we didn't believe it, tried it, and it was true!.

You can't stand milk in Tetrapaks ............. I couldn't stand it in the plastic bags! Those bags certainly didn't go down well in this province!

It does, yes. The plastic bag fits in easier than the lidless type and because the bag doesn’t protrude at the top, it doesn’t slosh around. Well worth $5.99.

I splurged and bought two. One for him 2% milk and one for me 0% milk.

And the lid keeps it all in even when it's tipped up on its side like that?
