Recycling Depot

Take your refundable containers to the Recycling Depot in bags and donate the refund to the Food Bank

How it works:

  1. Put your containers in clear plastic bags, no sorting needed!
  2. Pick up one or more pre-printed labels at the Food Bank, any Tuesday between 10 am and 3 pm.  Or, at any Express depot, print your labels at the kiosk using phone number 250-442-2800, remember one label per bag.
  3. Put a label on each of your bags and drop them off at a Return-It Depot.  In Grand Forks, the depot is located at 8058 Donaldson Drive. (Verify times as they may change)
  4. The staff will sort your containers and credit the Food Bank’s Express account.

Please do not drop your containers at the Food Bank. Visit for more information
