Virtual Bottle Drives
Your organization may set up an account with the bottle depot and have your members and supporters bring in their containers and donate the proceeds to you. We sort and count the donation, credit the proceeds to your account and send you a cheque at the end of each month.
Virtual Bottle Drive Participants
Alberta Bottle Depot Associations new Provincial Fundraising Program - Depot operators ask Albertans to make a donation and make a difference.
- Alberta Cans for Kids is a new fundraising initiative implemented by the Alberta Bottle Depot Association (ABDA) at over 200 bottle depots across Alberta.
- Each year a new charity (focused on meeting the needs of children in the province) will be chosen as a campaign partner.
- The campaign partner selected by ABDA for this year is the Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation in Calgary.
- This ongoing initiative has a goal of raising $100,000 through the recycling of beverage containers.
Donating one can to the campaign is a simple act that every Albertan can do. It's good for the environment and it helps kids - our most important resource.
Regular Bottle Drive
Your group collects the containers and drops them off at our depot. We will sort and count them and send you a cheque for the full amount. It helps us to accommodate bottle drives if you book ahead.
