Did you know that you can get money back for your bottles and cans? Signup with SkipTheDepot today and book a pickup and one of our drivers will take your bottles and cans to the depot for you! No more waiting in line at the stinky bottle depot! Book a pickup, kick back and wait for the funds to be transferred to your SkipTheDepot account once they are counted!

How it Works
  • 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 (or leave empty to keep the cash).

  • 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”).

  • 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!
