Be Prepared

Take your Earthware containers and/or lids to one of the select bottle depots for a refund! Come prepared:

  • CONTAINERS MUST BE RINSED AND NOT CRACKED OR THE BOTTLE DEPOTS WILL NOT ACCEPT THEM.
  • Deposit returns for the containers and lids are separate.
  • Don’t stack containers and lids to make it easier to count them at the depot.

Understanding Deposits & Refunds

Some Earthware providers will add an additional fee to your order while others include the fee as part of the total. 

 

You will receive a minimum of 25¢ per container and 25¢ per lid from Bottle Depots when you return Earthware.  Any difference between the fee you may have paid to an Earthware provider and what you receive from the Bottle Depot is the Bottle Depot’s processing fee.

Support Community Initiatives

We are pleased to provide another source of revenue for non-profits with our return-for-refund takeout containers! Check with your Bottle Depots for options on how to support local initiatives or charities.

There are many organizations that rely on this kind of funding. You can donate your containers to those in need with various pick-up services.

Don't Put Us in the Blue Bins!

Our containers are for reusing! They will NOT get sorted in our municipal system and find their way back to us, if you put them in your household recycle bins.

 

Bring them home to us through the bottle depots and we’ll put them to good use!
