Vecova Bottle Depot and Bottle Pick-Up Service provide fast, accurate, and friendly service!
Our Depot uses the latest technology and skilled workers to process your refund faster and leave the slower product sorting for the warehouse. This means less wait time and quick moving lines for our customers.
Or try our Bottle Pick-Up Service! Vecova Bottle Pick-Up Service is a free, simple and efficient recycling pick-up service for Calgary residential and business clients. Sign-up online at recyclewithvecova.ca and we’ll send you information on your pick-up schedule and drop off your bags.
Our regular, reliable and professional pick-up service ensures that bottles never pile up and that you can keep track of your collection and tax receipts easily. Together, we create social impact by providing employment to disabled adults and by supporting Vecova’s programs and research .
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.
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.
