What do you want to know more about?

Create Your Account

The first thing you need to do is create your account! Head to on your favourite device and click on ‘Sign Up’ - All you need is a name, email address, and phone number!

Hover your mouse/tap for more!

Locate a SARCAN Near You

Head to our Hours & Locations page to find out where your local SARCAN depot is and when they are open - some of our locations even have extended hours for Drop & Go for those late night bottle runs!

Hover your mouse/tap for more!

You can also use that page to find out where in your local depot the Drop & Go kiosk is located since this varies from depot to depot.

Be sure to check this page before you visit as occasionally Drop & Go is so popular we run out of space and have to temporarily pause accepting orders. We will post these temporary closures on that page when it does happen.

Tag your bags & boxes

With your tags all printed, peel each tag off individually and stick them to your bags and boxes - 1 tag for each bag and/or box that you are dropping off!

Hover your mouse/tap for more!

Try and make sure to place your tags on your bags and boxes without wrinkling or folding them and put them in a spot that is easily seen and accesible so that we are able to scan them.

If you did accidentally print off too many tags, stick the extra tags to one of your bags or boxes so that we know we aren’t missing one!

Your Order in the Queue

After you ‘Go’, one of our Recycling Technicians will take your order and place it into the queue in the order that we recieved it.

Hover your mouse/tap for more!

As you can imagine, at some of our locations, our Drop & Go is very popular! Our Recycling Technicians work hard to get you your refund as soon as possible, but occasionally it may take a day or two before we get to your order.

Thank you very much in advance for your patience!

Your Order Status

You can log in to your My Drop & Go account after you have dropped off your order to check on it’s status.

Hover your mouse/tap for more!

You can then go to the Transactions page of your account to see the history of all of your transactions, including the ones for your active order.
