Recycle with Cans for Kids

Now, when you recycle beverage containers at any Alberta bottle Depot, you can help keep families close. Alberta Cans for Kids is an easy recycling program for individuals, schools and businesses designed to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House! Simply bring your beverage containers eligible for a deposit to the Depot nearest you and ask to donate to RMHC Southern & Central Alberta through Alberta Cans for Kids. Get Your School or Business Involved! Register your school or business by contacting Jennifer Mackenzie at 403-340-2007 ext. 108.

Best of all, we will arrange for your local Alberta bottle Depot to collect your recycling on a regular basis and have proceeds donated to the House! *NOTE: We no longer accept pop tabs.
