Takeout, without the waste

Learn how it all works


It all starts with a reusable

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


At the point of sale, you’ll pay a small deposit and possibly a tiny washing fee 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. It will prompt you to choose how you want to make your return to receive your deposit back.


Then drop the container in a ShareWares return bin or schedule a pick up on the app.

Now it's time to reuse!

We’ll pick up, wash, inspect, scan, and digitally return your credits.

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!
