Drop off your containers without having to sort them first!

This program introduces a new option for British Columbians to recycle their used beverage containers. Consumers will be able to drop off their containers at a Return-It Express kiosk without having to sort them first. We take care of the sorting and credit the deposit refunds to the consumer’s online account. Then, the consumer can turn those refunds into cash, gift cards, or a charitable donation.

Sign up for your free Return It Express account by visiting and register with a phone number of your choice. With Return It Express there’s no need to sort. Simply place your empty beverage containers securely into a “Blue” or transparent bag.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Once you have signed up for a free Return it Express Account, visit an Return It Express kiosk at the Nechako Bottle Depot (on 1st Ave in Prince George) with your items and use your registered phone number to access your account.
  2. Select how many bags you have and where you want us to deposit your refund. You can either choose your account or select one of the charities listed on the screen.
  3. Once you’ve finished, the kiosk will print off labels for you to stick on each bag. It’s important each bag receives its own sticker.
  4. Place your bags into the Express Kiosk drop off area and you are done. We’ll sort, count and refund your deposit. It’s that simple.

To redeem your refunds and get a cheque, go online to check the status of your account.
