Pick a date for your bottle drive. The best times for a bottle drive are in the
spring and fall or in early January. The next best times are just after a major
event, like the Calgary Stampede, or a major holiday.
In general, there are three preferred methods for bottle drive:
Area Residents to drop off at a community center in the community in black garbage
bags. MBCS will donate truck and an employee to pick up the containers to Depot
and sort and count them with 2-3 days and mail you the cheque.
to go around community door to door and collect and sort the bottles at a central
location such as garage of a local volunteer. MBCS will send the driver and truck
on and you can pick up your check same day.
your regular donors to our website, they can inform the cashier about your group.
MBCS will collect the printed receipts from website and at the end of the month,
MBCS will mail your amount along with receipt.
Method: select a central gathering (bottles) place for everyone to bring their containers.
This could be a school, recreation centre or even a person’s house. We will supply
a truck and a driver to pick up your bottles, at your pickup location, at no charge
to you. Two or three months in advance of your date, contact us (MBCS) with your
proposed date and book your date with us. We will need a CONTACT NAME, PHONE NUMBER,
PICKUP ADDRESS AND A DESIRED TIME OF PICKUP. We will supply you with “ADVANCE NOTICE”
door hangers full color flyers, free of charge. To be most effective, you should
organize to deliver these ADVANCE NOTICE flyers minimum two weeks in advance of
your bottle drive date.
