BottleDrop & Donate to OEC!

by Kevin Kasowski, Director of Foundations and Corporate Relations

Tired of standing in line at the grocery store waiting to recycle cans and bottles, or having the machine jam or fill when you’re using it and then having to fetch the store attendant?

Good news – your life just got easier! You can now cut the hassle factor involved in recycling by signing up for BottleDrop, a new program that allows you to simply drop off your cans and bottles at the nearest BottleDrop location at your convenience 24-7. BottleDrop counts them for you and credits a card that you can then redeem at any grocery store.

It gets better though. You can designate a charity like OEC to receive your credits instead and it’s tax-deductible.

It’s easy to sign up: just go to your nearest BottleDrop location. It takes less than 10 minutes to create an account.

They give you a card and bags and bag tags that you use when you return your cans and bottles. If you want to donate your credits, to charity, it’s easy to do online via your account.
