Uptown Bottle Depot has provided beverage container collection and recycling for Calgary residents since the 1970s—long before being green was trendy! Under new partnership since 2010, our business has grown into one of the biggest depots in the area, with a team of two dozen employees ready to serve you.
Did you know the energy saved by recycling a single aluminum can is enough to power your television for three hours? Amazing, right?!? Check out our Depot Quick Facts page to read more amazing facts about recycling!
Quick In-and-Out Returns
We appreciate that you’re doing your part to keep our city—and the environment—clean. But we also know how busy you are, which is why you can count on us for fast and easy returns.

Bottle Drives and Pick-Ups
For restaurants, schools, offices or other commercial establishments with large loads, Uptown Bottle Depot offers a pick-up service in Calgary and surrounding areas. You can also plan and book your next bottle drive with us. As part of our own fundraising efforts, we proudly support Alberta Cans for Kids and the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank, with two donation bins on-site.
