Return-It Express & GO UBC

Recycling beverage containers is about to get easier for the UBC community! Express & GO is the new convenient Return-It drop-off station at UBC's Vancouver campus.

Here's what makes Express & GO the quickest, most convenient way to return your beverage containers for the deposit refund:

Get money back - return your refundable beverage containers

Did you know your empty soda cans, juice boxes, plastic bottles and other beverage containers could be worth some extra cash? When you purchase refundable beverage containers in BC, you’re charged a deposit as a part of BC’s beverage container recycling system. When you return your refundable containers to a Return-It location, we give you all your deposits back!

Forget sorting and counting

Express & GO revolutionizes the recycling experience by allowing pre-bagged beverage containers to be dropped off without the need for sorting and counting. Bring your unsorted containers in transparent plastic bags to the Express & GO station — we’ll sort and count your containers for you and credit your refund to your online account.

Innovative & sustainable

Powered by solar energy, the unstaffed station is housed in a repurposed shipping container that opens early at 8 am and closes late at 8 pm to accommodate your busy schedule.
