Our enthusiastic and cooperative staff at Country Hills Bottle Depot will help you plan a bottle drive for your sports team, community association, children’s group, school, or non-profit organization in the Calgary area. The Alberta Bottle Depot Association and the Beverage Container Management Board may provide information on the various values of your containers. We can assist you with two sorts of bottle drives:
We can do the sorting for you and give you more time to do collections, allowing you to focus on raising more funds.
You can sort all the containers yourself and deliver the recyclables to us. To learn more about it, get in touch with us.
After your bottle drive is over, you must be looking for a nearby bottle depot. Country Hills Bottle Depot welcomes you to bring your collection. You are also welcome to use our cargo trucks at no charge. We will gladly assist you if you believe your bottle drive will gather more bottles than your available cars can transport. We’ll send one of our vehicles to your collection site to pick up the recyclables and transport them to our recycling centre. We can provide vehicles that can handle loads up to 5 tonnes or a more standard 1-tonne truck.
The measures you should consider taking to achieve a successful bottle drive are listed below:

Before the bottle drive, make sure you and your volunteers are ready. Determine how many volunteers and vehicles your group has available to assist you. You can leave one or two persons at a drop-off spot and divide the rest of the volunteers, depending on the number of volunteers. Make sure your routes are planned ahead of time and that you have a map to guide you. Once everything is set up, go door to door collecting bottles. At the single drop-off area, where everyone will congregate at the finish, our utility trailer/cube van will be parked and waiting.
Please get in touch with us after the drive is completed. We will pick up the utility trailer/cube van. We’ll assist you in counting and sorting the containers you’ve collected. We’ll give you a thorough receipt after we’ve finished counting. Please note that after we complete our counting procedure, we will email your bottle drive totals to you within a few days.
Your containers are recycled at our bottle return facility, and the revenues are donated to the charity of your choice, which is a very convenient service. You may raise money for your school or a charity with bottle return depot.
