While we all know the environmental and financial benefit to bringing back our empty drink containers to the bottle depot, we’d all prefer to skip the depot when possible. It’s definitely not most people’s favourite task. Returning empty containers can be messy and the bags, box or cartons you use to hold the containers take up a lot of space on your vehicle.

And no matter how clean a depot is, it still smells of old liquids from inside the containers that have been returned. Many people have wished they could skip the bottle depot but still get their refund, and now they can!
