Drive-Through Bottle Drive for Kids!

We’re back!

Turn your empties into opportunities for kids at the Drive-Through Bottle Drive

Bottle Drive for OSEG Foundation

On Saturday, June 12 between 9AM-2PM, bring your empty bottles and cans to TD Place outside of Gate 3 on Exhibition Way to help raise funds for the OSEG Foundation’s programs and initiatives that help get kids off the sidelines and into the game.

The pandemic and public health restrictions over the past year have had a tremendous impact on kids’ physical and mental health, and social development.  Now, more than ever, kids need opportunities to leverage the power of sports.

Your donation of empties will help break down these additional barriers so more kids will have the opportunity to play, learn and develop through sports.

We are all excited to welcome you back to TD Place and can’t wait to see you there!

The first-ever bottle drive in 2020 was huge success. Click here to read more.

What can you do to help? – Planning Your Visit

The Bottle Drive will be set up as a drive-through system enabling continuous flow of traffic and allow for contactless bottle and can donations. Beer bottles, liquor bottles and beer cans are welcome.

Please note that we are dedicated to keeping our event staff and donors safe while accepting container donations. To ensure everyone’s safety, we recommend donors consider the following steps to ensure you have a safe and quick experience:

  1. Before visiting the Drive-Through Bottle Drive we ask you to please consider rinsing and organizing your empty containers at home. Please put the containers in boxes or clear plastic bags if possible.
  2. Please sort your returns and separate all containers into different boxes or bags where possible in the following categories:
    1. Separate all cans from each other.
    2. Separate all wine & liquor bottles from beer bottles.
      • Please note: We are not taking other tin/aluminum cans (Pop cans, beans, peaches, etc)
    3. Load your vehicle with the containers.
    4. Drive over to TD Place for the Drive-Through Bottle Drive. Upon arrival, follow signage directing you to the empty return zone at Gate 3 on Exhibition Way.
    5. Please remain in your vehicle at all times. When instructed by event staff, please open your trunk, or signal to our staff which door can be opened to access your empty containers.
    6. When your donation is now complete, please follow guided instructions to safely drive away from the site.

Lastly, donors are encouraged to wear masks as an added safety measure, and remain in their vehicle at all times.
