Home Pickups with the SkipTheDepot App

Did you know? Bottles and cans can be returned to a bottle depot for cash! As we all know, this can be messy and eat up a good chunk of your day. SkipTheDepot lets you ditch the dirty work while still getting money back! It’s an easy 3-step process:

  • 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.

  • 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!

Save time

Loading leaky bags into the car, driving to the bottle depot, and then waiting in line to get a handful of cash isn't a great use of your time. Book a pickup, put your bags outside, and go do that thing you've been meaning to do.

It's free

No credit card required! It’s free to request a pickup from your home or office. We do, however, issue slightly lower deposits than bottle depots.

Schedule your pick up by entering your address, date, and any donation preferences. Use the directions / comments section to give specific instructions for the driver (Example: Call this number when arriving, Bags are alongside fence, etc).

On the scheduled day of your pickup, place your bags outside in a secure location by 8am. The driver will pick up your bags between 8am and 5pm, label them, and take them to our counting facility. Once counted your account will be updated with your new balance and counts. Request an Interac e-Transfer to redeem your balance.

You will be notified every step of the way! Requested, picked up, counted, and deposited!

You don't have to be home. Just have your bags placed in your secure location by 8am and directions filled out for the driver in the comments section.

We also don't need anything sorted. However, we do prefer containers to be placed in big garbage bags.

Interac e-Transfer! Simply log into the website or SkipTheDepot app and request a redemption. This will trigger an Interac e-Transfer to be sent to your email address, which you can then use to deposit into any participating financial institution of your choice. The minimum required amount is $25.
