You may bring them mixed together in the same box or plastic bag for your convenience (please keep the caps on and do not squash them). Please be sure to rinse all containers that once held milk or dairy products, including jugs, cartons and bottles for obvious reasons. We reserve the right to refuse any unsanitary order.

Be a Part of Our Bottle Drives to Help Mighty Max

Max is a two-year-old who suffers from a rare disease known as Spinal Muscular Atrophy (type 2). His family is working towards raising $2.8 million to pay for the dug Zolgensma. It's a gene therapy medication, and the drug is not currently funded in Canada, but the Max's parents are hoping to change this.

Recently, Beddington Heights Bottle Depot organized city wide bottle drives which collected $45,000 for Max. The cheque was presented to Max's parents who have already raised close to a million dollars!

We are thankful to residents all across the city who have been actively supporting Max and his family by putting their bottles together in the bottle drives organized in the recent past. Beddington Heights Bottle Depot is still accepting donations for Mighty Max. If you want to help, please call us.
