The Manchester Bottle Depot is a collection point of the deposit-refund system implemented in Calgary, Alberta Canada. As a result of the container-deposit legislation, under 1L beverage containers are valued at 10 cents and over 1L containers at 25 cents. The average “black garbage” bag of bottles & cans is worth around 7 dollars.
In order to get your deposit refund you must take them back to a bottle depot. The process involves loading them up into your truck (or friends truck), driving over to the depot and waiting in line for them to sort and count. Typical times can range between 30 minutes and 3 hours (from door-to-door).
If you’re looking to save some time and effort we would advise using SkipTheDepot. This app takes your bottles & cans to the depot and e-Transfers you the money. You can keep it or even donate it to a charity of your choice.

Okay, I had to write a review on this place. I just went to see how my original bottle depot chalked up against others and was surprised to see that it had a poor rating. I decided to read other rev... read more - 2/22/2016
