At Country Hills Bottle Depot, we are flexible and can work with you to do fundraising bottle drives in the Calgary area for your sports teams, community associations, children’s groups, schools, non-profit organizations, and more. Learn the value of the containers you collect from the Alberta Bottle Depot Association and Beverage Container Management Board.
Our Bottle Drives
We-Sort Bottle Drives: To help you focus on getting more funds raised, we can do the sorting for you and give you more time to do collections.
You-Sort Bottle Drives: If you want to sort and bring bottles to us, we can make that happen too, so contact us to find out more. However, you must remember a few steps before you set up your bottle drive:
Choose a Date:
The first step to set up your bottle drive is to pick a date for it and then choose a location or community. When you chose a meeting point, it can be a school parking, park parking, community center, or any other open space. You must also inform and get the permission from the respective center to host the drive.
The next step to a successful bottle drive is to advertise your program using all social media platforms to inform residents of the date, time and location.
Ensure that all the volunteers are well-prepared before the bottle drive. Pre-plan your routes and decide on your single drop-off point. Having a map for them would make things easier. After the door-to-door collection is completed, everyone can meet at the single drop-off point where the trailer/cube van will be parked.
Once the bottle drive has been completed, kindly email us or call us to come and pick up the trailer/cube van. Our staff will then carefully count and sort all the containers that have been collected.
As the counting process would be extensive, we will drop you an email about the bottle drive totals within a few days. We accept cash and cheques, so you can opt to pay us via either of them. Once we receive the payment, we will give you a detailed receipt in return. We look forward to collaborating with you.
