A sustainable source of funding for our programs
The Bottle Recycling Program was developed to create financial sustainability for the food program. The program has been a huge success, and has grown throughout the years.
We partner with the Whitecourt Bottle Depot, to have our counted, sorted bottles and cans picked up weekly.
Volunteer opportunities and meaningful employment
The program provides positive volunteer opportunities and paid positions for the part-time meaningful employment program. These include bottle pick-up, sorting, and cleaning.
Our valued employees work hard with a positive attitude, to contribute to the success of the bottle recycling program.
We have a dedicated team of community members and businesses that have supported regular bottle pickups throughout the community.
We're always looking for a few willing hands to pick up & sort our bottle collection - will you join us?
