Bottle Drives

Bottle Drive

Our next bottle drive is:

Saturday, January 6th, Glenayre Elementary School

If your home is in the yellow highlighted area, we will pick up donations of refundable beverage containers between 9am and 12pm.

If you will not be home or would prefer not to be disturbed, please leave your bottles and cans in a bag in front of your yard or door, or another noticeable spot, and we will take them away.

You are also welcome to drop off your contribution anytime between 9am and 12pm on bottle drive dates.

We will post signs to remind you of the upcoming drives:

1st Glenayre Scouts are proud to cover all programming fees through grants and fundraising, ensuring Scouting is accessible to all families!  Bottle Drives are a key part of our fundraising program. Thank you for your support!

Thank you to Glenayre Elementary School for allowing us to use your convenient drive-through parking lot!


You would like to support us by dropping off your refundables at a depot?  Thank you!  Here's how!


When you arrive at the recycling centre, you will find an Express Dropoff area. There is a machine that will print labels for your bags. Our "telephone number" is "1stglenayr" spelled out in numbers (178 453 6297).


The money from the bags of bottles is automatically deposited to 1st Glenayre.
