Empties Recycling

We have a designated area on the left side of our driveway, just past our aluminum/pop can recycling bins, to accept empties.

Please, make sure your empties are boxed or bagged.  It is much appreciated when cans, bottles and plastic wine bladders are separated, as we have limited volunteers to sort.  We accept everything the Beer Store takes back.

Watch our social media pages and our Event's page for our Curb-side Bottle Drive dates.

Would you like to volunteer at our bottle drives?  Email our volunteer coordinator at

Change for Pets! (Formally 'Pennies for Pets')

We are always collecting pennies (yes, we still want your pennies!) and other coin.

Bring your bags, cans, tins, jars or rolled change to us and we'll put that coin to good use!  This money goes towards shelter supplies.  

We also accept Canadian Tire money!

Aluminium Can Recycling Program

In partnership with Community Living's Jobs'R'Us program, this recycling program brings much-needed funds to both organizations. Don't let that 'money' go into your recycle bin, bring it to us!

Drop your bagged pop cans off to the grey recycle bins located along the side of Second Chance - 111 McLaughlin Road.  These recycle bins can be accessed 24/7.  

When bagging, please only put pop cans/aluminum cans, in the bag. We can no longer accept soup cans, pet food cans, or other tin.  Cans can be whole or crushed.

Thank you for your support!
