We don't have a truck and we were swimming in bottles. This service has been great, and we love getting a few extra bags on pick-up day for the next round. A little prep and away our bottles go. Thanks so much!
Fast, courteous, and they give estimates as to when they are picking up. Great way especially if you have limited mobility. They also take clean, unwanted clothing, and match to a charity which can use your donation. Completely recommend. Brilliant idea and app.
Excellent service for those of us who don't drive or have far to many bottles to take to the depot directly. The driver that picked up my 19 bags of bottles was very nice and polite. She was alone so I helped her load them in her truck and she was very grateful for my help. I will use them again when I have more bottles, electronics or clothing for recycling.
