Vecova Bottle Pick-Up Service has recently been negatively affected by a rash of donation thefts. These groups and/or individuals have taken Vecova-branded bins and bags of recyclable bottles that are specifically collected to donate back to Vecova. Our Bottle Pick-Up Service is an important part of what we do at Vecova. Donations generated from this business go directly to the persons with disabilities in Calgary and the Bow Valley Corridor who we serve.
While this is disappointing and upsetting, we are thankful to everyone for showing their support to us in this situation. We are hopeful that any coverage and publicity regarding these thefts will hinder any potential future disruptions to the donations we receive for our community.
For more information, we encourage you to read the CBC news story here.
Update: For an interview with those affected, plus surveillance footage, please watch the CTV Calgary segment here.
If you have any information regarding these thefts, please contact the Calgary Police Service.
