With the bottle depot being closed due to the COVID 19 pandemic, people are seeing their bottle collection pile up.
A chat between three friends, Sandra from AMPED2PLAY, Mark from Corner Co-working and Chris from Half Hitch Brewing Company came up with the idea to help ease people's bottle load and help out local charities at the same time.
Saturday April 4 from 9-4 you can drop of your empties at either The Corner Co-working at 225 Railway St. E., or Half Hitch Brewing Company at Unit #1,10 Griffin Industrial Point.
Proceeds from the bottle drive will be divided among local charities including:
Helping Hands Society of Cochrane
Cochrane Immigrant Services Committee
Cochrane and Area Hospice
Big Hill Haven Shelter
Cochrane Humane Society
Boys and Girls Club
Family Resources Network (formally ParentLink)
