How SkipTheDepot Makes Fundraising Easy: Over $2 Million Donated to Charities, Nonprofits, and Schools

No more bottle drives and no more bottle depots! Organize fundraisers from the comfort of your couch!

In today's world, taking steps toward sustainability and community support is not only commendable but also achievable. Alberta's very own tech company, SkipTheDepot, is leading the way in making recycling and fundraising easy, environmentally responsible, and community-focused. With over $2 million donated to charities, nonprofits, and schools, SkipTheDepot's innovative app is not just transforming recycling; it's changing lives.

Empowering the Community

SkipTheDepot, established in 2018, has been at the forefront of transforming the recycling landscape into a powerful force for good. This Alberta-based tech company offers a range of services, from bottle and can recycling to clothing and electronics donations. The heart of SkipTheDepot's mission is to empower both households and businesses to make a positive impact on the environment and their communities.

Recycling Made Simple

SkipTheDepot is like an 'Uber' for your recyclables. With just a few taps on their user-friendly app, customers can schedule pickups for their bottles and cans, clothing, and electronics. The best part? You can choose to receive the refund or, even better, donate it to a nonprofit of your choice. This unique approach not only incentivizes responsible recycling practices but also supports charitable causes simultaneously.

With SkipTheDepot, there's no more searching for a "bottle depot near me." Your bottle and can recycling and other donations are collected right from your doorstep.

No more need to search for a "bottle depot near me", haul your bottles and wait in line. Book a pickup for your bottles and we will come and get it... no need to wait in line at the bottle depot!

Supporting Charitable Causes

At the core of SkipTheDepot's mission is a commitment to supporting charitable causes. With their fundraising and bottle drive program, they're making it easy for charities, schools and sports teams to raise funds without the hassles of traditional bottle drives.

Instead of organizing complex and time-consuming bottle drives, organizations can simply sign up and share their unique sign-up link with potential donors. This streamlined approach not only reduces the time spent collecting donations but also eliminates any costs associated with bottle drives. The best part? These campaigns can run year-round, ensuring a steady flow of funds for organizations.
