Recycling with SkipTheDepot

SkipTheDepot is a recycling pickup service and we want to help everyone in Academy recycle better. We'll come and pick up your recyclables, such as beverage containers, old electronics, and used clothing, and recycle them for you.

  • Step 1

    1. Download the app or register online

    Download SkipTheDepot from the App Store or Google Play, or visit our web app. Sign up and schedule a pickup by entering your address and donation preference.

  • Step 2

    2. Enter your home address and pick a date

    The morning of your pickup day, put your bags outside. Use the directions area in the app to let the driver know where to find them or any other special directions (key code / “call me”).

  • Step 3

    3. That’s it! Cash out or donate to charity

    We will count your bags and credit your account within 48 hours after pickup. We even show you what we counted! You can cash out via Interac e-Transfer or donate your refunds to a local charity!
