Guide to the Depot

Process your refund quickly!

Rinse Your Containers

Help make our Depot a clean and inviting place – rinse your empty beverage containers. Cleaning your beverage containers means less odor and germs. Leave tabs, labels and lids on plastic containers. While it is okay to squish plastic milk jugs, please don’t crush cans or bottles.

Keep It Tidy

Remember to remove items like plastic rings, carton boxes and other extra packaging that may have come with your beverage containers. Beer bottles can be brought to the Depot in the case they were purchased in. Depots use these cases to return the bottles so they can be recycled or refilled.

Size is a Big Deal

We have an automated sorting system that makes the process more efficient. Although you are not required to pre-sort your containers by size (1L and less or over 1L) or type (glass, cans etc.) pre-sorting can help speed up the processing time at our Depot.

Beverage Containers Only

With the exception of beer bottles, that can be returned in the cardboard boxes they came in, our Depot only processes empty beverage containers.
