The Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary is holding its first bottle drive to help support the wildlife in our care. We are accepting empty beer/cooler cans and bottles, wine and liquor bottles, and wine boxes.

You can drop off bottles anytime between now and July 8. Because this event is taking place close to Canada’s 150th Birthday, we hope that the public would be willing to donate any empties from BBQs and parties.

Drop-off locations include:

  • Rideau Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, North Gower (please call or email for address)
  • 58 Pigeon Terrance, Ottawa (Hunt Club/McCarthy)
  • 9099 McArton Rd, Almonte (near Carleton Place)
  • 877 Schooner Cres, Gloucester (Riverside South)
  • 571 Aberfoyle Circle, Kanata (Terry Fox/March Rd)
  • 1089 Lena Ave, Manotick

If you have a large delivery, please let us know in advance.

If you have any questions you can call 613-258-9480 or email Every little bit makes a difference. Thank you for helping wildlife in need!
