We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation very closely. Return-It depots have been taking precautionary measures and are aware of the requirements from health authorities to protect their employees and customers in the handling of clean empty beverage containers for recycling. There have been changes in depot operating hours and we encourage you to visit the locations page of our website (https://www.return-it.ca/locations/) for the most up to date information. Please do not visit a Return-It depot if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, exposed to, or experience symptoms of the virus.
