Return-It Express Plus Yaletown

Return-It Express Plus Yaletown is a convenient and cashless way to recycle your used beverage containers in Yaletown, BC. With the Express system, you no longer need to count and sort the containers, and you skip the lineups.

How the Express System Works

  1. Bring your unsorted containers in sealed, clear or transparent bags of up to 90-litre capacity to an Express Yaletown location.
  2. Use the phone number you registered with to log in at an Express Kiosk.
  3. Print your tags, tag your bags and scan the labels. Express Drop-Off Scan is a new program operating at select locations where Express customers are required to scan in their Express bags before dropping them off. For more details, please visit Express Drop-Off Scan.
  4. Leave the bags with us. We'll sort and count the containers, and your Express Account will be credited with your deposit refund. You can redeem your account balance by Interac e-Transfer or a mailed cheque.
