Vecova Bottle Depot provides fast, accurate service
7 days a week.

We use the latest technology and skilled workers to process your refund faster. We count your order by deposit value (10₵ or 25₵) and leave the slower product sorting for the warehouse. This means less wait time and quick moving lines for our customers.

In 2016, Vecova’s Bottle Depot processed over 15.8 million containers, handled close to 64,000 customer orders and worked with over 88 schools, clubs, organizations and businesses. More than $355,000 will flow back into the community through bottle drives and fundraisers that use our services.

And that’s not all. By recycling, over 808,000 kg of goods have been diverted from the landfill, greenhouse gas emissions have been reduced by 1.535 million kg and the equivalent of 5.2 million kWh of energy have been saved.

As Calgary’s only non-profit depot, we also employ persons with disabilities and provide a recycling service to the community. Your support helps to enhance the lives of adults with disabilities whether you use our depot to receive your refund or donate your beverage containers to support Vecova.

Or try our Beverage Container Pick-Up service. Vecova provides bags, bin and a tax receipt for every full bag donated to be recycled. Proceeds are used to support Vecova disability services and research. Homeowners, condos and organizations can sign up for the service at

What Can Your Donations Do?

When you choose to donate your bottles and cans, you help Vecova enhance the lives of people with disabilities. The refund value of your donations goes directly to supporting the research, services and programs that enable our clients to lead full lives—just like you.

Vecova Bottle Depot is open 7 days a week, except statutory holidays.
