If your empties are gathering dust, why not donate them to Kids Cancer Care. Or better yet, organize a bottle drive in your community and drop the bottles off at a bottle depot near you. If you drop off your empites at Trail Bottle Depot (8499 Horton Rd SW), Kids Cancer Care will receive a higher percentage of the proceeds.
Skip the Depot
If you prefer, let Skip the Depot do the dirty work! Download the app, schedule a pick up, select Kids Cancer Care as where you want your refund to go and put your recyclables outside your home. At the end of the year, you even get a tax receipt!
