Frequently Asked Questions
Find out how SkipTheDepot works for bottle drives
Absolutely! Some customers prefer to donate their containers to a worthy cause! SkipTheDepot helps facilitate this by allowing customers to donate to local charities on pick up or redemption. Tax receipts are then issued to customers by the charity.
Charities use SkipTheDepot for free, but are encouraged to help spread the word (it's in your best interests!). We will provide a registration link for your organization. Any new users registering with your link will be shown your organization information and will be setup to automatically donate to your charity.
100% of the customer's returns will be donated. However, we offer slightly lower deposit rates than a depot. Eventually, we hope to remove this and offer full deposit rates as more people sign up for SkipTheDepot!
You can register here! We need the following information from the charity: Full Charity Name, Full Charity Mission Statement, PNG / Logo of Charity, CRN (Charity Registration Number), Email Address to send Transfers. There is also an approval process which involves us verifying who you say you are, the email address, and your charitable status through the government. After that, you're good to go!
Charity administrators can find a registration link on their dashboard which can be used to default users who register using the link into donating to your charity. Use this link to promote donations to your cause!
Charity administrators can log into the system and initiate an Electronic Fund Transfer to accept the donations. Alternatively, we can setup direct deposits instead of Electronic Fund Transfers.
Just some good publicity. Spread the word! Tell others, give us a shout out on social media. Remember, the more customers you sign up using your registration link, the more your organization benefits!
