Since there has not been a Bottle Drive in the last few months, the Bottle Drive Committee has scheduled a series of bottle collection days in order to catch up with the presumably increased volume that has been piling up at everyone’s homes. 

Please have your bottles at the curb on the following MONDAY dates before 09:00:

  • May 18:  Arbutus Grove and Meadow Beach

  • May 25:  Saltspring, Pender connected streets, Seaside piece of Saturna and Onyx

  • June 1:  Cape Cod, Britannia, Gambier and Seaside piece of Gabriola

Each route is approximately 140+ houses.  Yes, we are aware that the 18th is a holiday.

The bottles will be stored overnight on the trucks and delivered to the bottle depot at 08:00 the next morning (Tuesday), by special arrangement with the depot to be open an hour early just for us.

Future bottle drives will be scheduled depending on the bottle depot’s operating limitations.
