Taking the waste out of Takeout

Learn how it all works


It all starts with borrowing a reusable

Visit one of our partner cafés or restaurants in Vancouver, BC and ask for reusable containers.


At the point of sale, you’ll pay a small deposit (eg. $1.50 for a cup + lid set) to borrow the reusable cup or takeout container.

Relax and enjoy!

Savour your favourite food or beverage, as usual. 

Well not quite like usual. As a bonus, you're saving waste from the landfill each time you use and return reusable container items.


It's return time!

When you’re finished, use your phone to scan the QR code on the container and create an account with just an email address and password.


Then scan any other reusables you have as well as the return bin's QR code and drop everything in the bin.

Additional return options include return to a depot and home pick-up from our zero-waste grocer partners Jarr, WiseFill, and Livlite!

Now it's time to refund and reuse!

We’ll pick up, wash, inspect, scan, and refund you through an e-transfer.

These freshly cleaned containers will then be redelivered to your favourite cafés and restaurants to be enjoyed again...and again...and again.


It’s a win-win-win for you, our community, and our planet!
