Exciting Changes at Vecova’s Bottle Depot!

If you’ve visited the Bottle Depot lately, you may have noticed a few changes taking place – we’re expanding the list of items that are accepted for recycling! Vecova’s Bottle Depot has partnered with a number of organizations to expand services and help divert more waste from landfills to be recycled or upcycled into new products. Our new partners, and accepted products, now includes:

  • Wine bottle corks, in partnership with ReCork
  • Alkaline, lithium and eCycle batteries, in partnership with Call2Recycle
  • Clothing and textiles, in partnership with Can-West Clothing Recycling through a new drop-bin to be installed in near future
  • Electronics, in partnership with Technotrash Alberta and the City of Calgary
  • Empty fuel canisters for safe disposal and recycling, in partnership with the City of Calgary

We’ve also launched a new Bottle Pick-Up App and extended the Bottle Depot’s hours – now open every day from 8 am – 6 pm! Learn more about Calgary’s only not-for-profit bottle depot here.
