If they didn't have the bins people would just drop stuff in a pile anyway.

Just look at it like someone who wanted/needed it gets to use what you didn't want anymore.

That's not a bad thing.
I might look normal but believe me, I talk to animals and wait for them to reply.

And they will steal the donations, that could have been used by the charity, and sold for cash to buy drugs.

Take them in yourself and donate to yourself.

If anyone is considering holding a bottle drive in the Rutland area you should check the Columbia Bottle Depot on Dease RD.

They went over & above to help us out for the Rutland family that had the house fire. They have sorting tables & they labelled every bin - juice boxes / beer cans etc. it all went very smoothly.

To everyone who donated - THANK YOU - it will be a big help for the family.

Please don't give them to the people who sit on Kirschner everyday, waiting to take bottles from the people who haven't realized the depots moved a few blocks away.

I watch them 5 days a week, they get enough to get drunk and high and wreak havoc nearby, then go back to their spot to
leech some more. Stop supporting them. You're fueling addiction and not helping anything

Hi, I have 4 to 5 bags of bottles that I would like to donate. If someone would like to come and pick them up that would be very helpful to me.
Thank you
Bonnie
