At Fish Creek Bottle Depot, our friendly team can work with you to organize a bottle drive in the Calgary area for your sports team, community association, children’s group, school, or non-profit organizations. Learn about the different values of our containers you can collect from the Alberta Bottle Depot Association and the Beverage Container Management Board. We can help with two different types of bottle drives:
To help you focus on raising more funds, we can do the sorting for you and give you more time to do collections.
If you want to sort and bring all of the recyclables to us, we can also make that happen. Contact us to find out more.
You must be looking for a bottle depot near you after your bottle drive has finished. You are welcome to bring your collection to Fish Creek Bottle Depot. You can also use our cargo trailer for free. However, if you think your bottle drive will collect more bottles than your available vehicles can carry, we are happy to help. We will bring our trucks to your collection site to return the recyclables to our recycling facility. We can provide trucks carrying loads as large as 5 tonnes or have a more conventional 1-tonne truck.
Listed below are the steps you should consider following to have a successful bottle drive:
To schedule your bottle drive, please fill out the form below:
Inform residents of the date and time of your bottle drive using social media platforms and other methods.
Ensure you and your volunteers before the bottle drive collection. Figure out how many volunteers and vehicles your group has to help you. Depending on the number of volunteers, you can leave one or two people at a drop-off site and divide the other volunteers. Make sure your routes are pre-planned, and you have a map for them.
Once you’re all set up, have fun going door to door to collect bottles. Our utility trailer/cube van will be parked and waiting at the single drop-off point where everyone will gather at the end.
Once the drive is complete, please get in touch with us. We will come and pick up the utility trailer/cube van. We will help you count and sort your collected containers. Once we finish counting, we will provide a detailed receipt.
Please note that we will email your bottle drive totals within a few days after we finish our counting process.
An incredibly convenient service is where your containers are recycled at our bottle return depot, and the proceeds are donated to your chosen charity.
