Was awesome, very nice to let us use their toilet. Most bottle depots close their washrooms. They also have warm water. Other bottle depots shut off their hot water. Nice to wash our hands with warm water.
Regional Recycling is the best recycling center. This location is not my favorite, but they give full deposit unlike some other bottle depots.
One of my go to places to return my empty bottles, cans, milk products. Always a hassle free and easy experience. Keep up the great work.
