Bottle Donation Program

What is the Bottle Donation Program? 

We take great pride in Growing Healthy Communities and the Bottle Donation Program is a great way to help our environment and support local charitable initiatives. Every month, a non-profit organization within our service region is selected as the recipient of this program.

In partnership with Recycle Plus we accept bottles and cans specifically for the purpose of giving back to our community. Items can be donated at the Aquatera Eco Centre, the  Aquatera Landfill, or at either of the Recycle Plus I and Recycle Plus II bottle depots. Click here to learn more about Recycle Plus programs and services and how they help to meet the needs and choices of persons with disabilities.

It’s so easy, you don’t even have to wait in line! You can just drop your items in the Aquatera Bottle Donation Bin and be on your way, knowing that your quick trip has made a wonderful impact on our community. Recently, the Bottle Donation Program surpassed $1M in Donations to Community Organizations.

Selecting Recipients 

When selecting recipients for our Bottle Donation Program we focus on certain organizations that have our youth community in mind. To be eligible you must:

  • Be a non-profit organization located within the Aquatera service area – this includes the City of Grande Prairie, the County of Grande Prairie, Town of Sexsmith and the Town of Wembley
  • You must provide programs or services that target youth under the age of 18
  • Funds received must be applied directly to the enhancement and/or support of the youth programs and services you provide

The recipient of the Bottle Donation Program is required to reconcile the donation funds within 12 months of receiving the funds. To apply for the Bottle Donation Program in the future, all funds must be reconciled prior to applying. Please fill out the Reconciliation Form and return it to communications@aquatera.ca.

The Bottle Donation Program application deadline is March 15. The Review Committee will set the recipient list for the subsequent 12 months.
