- If you have chosen a door-to-door or neighbourhood pick-up collection, divide the area into sections and assign collectors, drivers, and vehicles to these areas.
- If you have chosen a central site or depot drop-off, have a team onsite to greet people bringing in donations, and facilities for handling empty containers until you're ready to deliver them to our bottle depot or have them picked up.
- Make sure packers follow the guide according to size and type. Soft drink and juice containers must be kept separate from containers for beer and other alcohol beverages.
Glass bottles should be packaged in cardboard boxes, in any quantity and sizes, making sure the number can be easily checked.
Have enough volunteers on hand to sort containers. This will help make your bottle drive day efficient.
