a few words about us  
 

Signature Support Services purchased its first bottle depot in 1980. This business decision was based on the need to provide employment opportunities for our disabled clients. We started as one small depot on 124th Street. In 1981, we moved operations to 8702-113 Street (where Swan Industries is now located.) In order to serve our customers better, the business relocated again in to 10502-96 Avenue (next to the Eco Centre).

 

 

As the City of Grande Prairie continued to grow, so did the need for a second depot. In 2004, Recycle Plus applied and was granted a second license to operate a bottle depot. This new depot took almost two years to site and develop and when it opened it was considered state of the art in the industry. The depot is large with natural lighting streaming into the foyer. The Association was one of the first in the industry to install a POS system with computer monitors so the customer could see how his/her containers were being counted. Stainless steel sinks along with paved parking which includes a designated handicapped stall and ramp access is just some of the convenient perks at our depot. This depot has continued to pave the way in the industry being the first in North America to implement automated sorting and counting technology in both its front and back end operations.
