Bottle drives have become faster and easier.
We are offering 3 options for your
team to fundraise safely and quickly.
1) No Sort Bottle Drive:
The fastest & safest method for a fundraiser. Skip the sorting and allow us to pick up and sort your containers.

- Book your date and time for the pickup, and we provide the supplies at no charge.
- We will send funds to your account the following week that we receive your containers at our depot via electronic payment. **
- To offset the cost of no-sorting, there will be a 2-cent deposit reduction per container.
2) Fast Drop Fundraiser:
Simply bring your containers to any Regional Recycling location and drop off unsorted for a full refund.
- Once your account is created, your supporters can drop-off their unsorted containers at any location and it will be deposited into your account.
- We will keep a running tally for all your fundraising drop-offs and pick-ups, and pay your organization on a weekly basis via electronic payment. **
