Bottle Donation Program





The Bottle Donation Program was the brain child of Barry Bucknell, the former Executive Director for the Grande Prairie and District Association for the Mentally Handicapped. Its purpose is two-fold:

One: To benefit youth clubs and organizations that catered to youth groups.


Two: Provide a drop off centre for customers that choose not to wait in line and collect their refundable deposit. 

Large donation bins are located in the foyer at each bottle depot.

In partnership with Aquatera, the Bottle Donation Program took flight and was met with strong support. 
Aquatera has donation bins at the Eco-Centre (located next to the Plus I Depot) and at the landfill south of the city.

THANK YOU Grande Prairie and Aquatera for your generous donation to this program.


In 2009, the Alberta Bottle Depot Association partnered with the Stollery Children’s Hospital and the Grande Prairie Bottle Depots expanded their donation program to join the province wide effort that being undertaken to help sick children in the province. By donating the refunds from recycled containers, the campaign has raised more than $100,000 for the Stollery Children’s Hospital.




If you do not have time to stop in at the bottle depot, but would still like to donate your refundables, we will be offering a pick up service free of charge if you are donating! All proceeds will go to Signature Support Services which is a charity based organization serving the needs of persons with developmental disabilities, both in the city of Grande Prairie and throughout the Northwest region of Alberta.
