The Great Prairie Bottle Harvest

The biggest bottle drive in Alberta kicks off this October as a fun and easy way for everyone in our province to get involved in raising funds for causes they care about.

There are already a bunch of incredible groups fundraising this fall including the Boys and Girls Club of Lethbridge for subsidized childcare, Alberta Cerebral Palsy Association, Girl Guides of Canada, free youth drop-in nights, skill-building activities and many more.

Check out registered participants in The Great Prairie Bottle Harvest to see if there's an organization collecting containers near you or that you would like to deliver and donate your containers to.

The more beverage containers harvested, the more vital funding is raised.

  •  Containers 1L or less = 10 cents
  • Containers over 1L = 25 cents

How to Register

Register your own drive at and select from one of three drive dates:

- October 13th, 2018

Let Alberta Depot know who or what you’re raising funds for, and where you’ll be raising them. You can raise funds for your community, organization, club, a person or family in need, your team or anything else you care about.

How to Promote
