Calgary, AB – Calgary Bottle Exchange is at the forefront of the sustainability and eco-friendly recycling drive in Calgary, Alberta. The company has recently launched its Bottles for Cash program to keep the community safe from bottle waste, reduce waste items going into landfills, and repurpose bottles for other uses while also helping consumers make money.
Calgary Bottle Exchange has enjoyed a successful operation so far by encouraging active participation from community members. Now open seven days a week, the bottle recycling depot has significantly increased its capacity to handle a larger volume of waste bottles. This not only contributes to environmental preservation but also provides community members with greater opportunities to earn rewards from their consumer purchases.
With their 7-day availability, the center has also launched a range of services, including the Drop & Go service that allows customers to cut wait times while receiving cash for their recycling activities. The Drop & Go service offers an online solution that can be leveraged in three easy steps, starting with downloading or registering for SkipTheDepot on iOS AppStore and Android Google Play store. Upon setting up their account through the app, consumers receive a unique ID generated by the app. They can affix this ID to their bag and then proceed to drop off their bags at the depot. The team will work on the drop-off and credit consumers with cash or help them donate it to charity.
Calgary residents can also request the center’s pickup service, where the Calgary Bottle Exchange team comes to their homes, businesses, or condos to pick up bottles. To use the pickup bottle exchange service, community members are required to also download the SkipTheDepot app to schedule their residential, commercial, and multi-family pickups. With this option, users are encouraged to either hand over the bag during the collection attempt or leave their bottles in a location where the collection team can retrieve them.
Calgary Bottle Exchange also provides the Standard Bottle Drive service to community members who are passionate about a cause and interested in raising money and awareness for different charities. The team will help such community members with all their fundraising needs, advertising the fundraising in-store and online, thus giving customers the opportunity to support such causes while keeping the community safe and healthy for all.
The Calgary bottle depot accepts specific beverage container types, including aluminum, glass, tetra packs, clear plastics, bi-metals, plastics, pouches, and gable tops. They pay 25 cents for bottles larger than 1L and 10 cents for bottles equal to or less than 1L.
For community members, the expanded bottle recycling depot represents not only a convenient way to make some extra cash but also a means to support worthy causes. To schedule a drop-off or for any inquiries, contact the center at (403) 255-6944. Calgary Bottle Exchange is located at 9218 Horton Rd SW, Calgary, Alberta, T2V 2X4, Canada.
