Any Local Charities Accepting Bottle And Can Donations?
Anyone that has been on social media knows a lot of people have been drinking in quarantine. From beer bottles to pop cans, I have seen people sharing pics of mountains of returnables. I too have a mini-mountain of cans in my garage. So what do I do with them?
I like returnable money as much as the next guy, but I don't want to attract bugs and rodents to my ever growing can heap. Since we have no idea when we can return bottles and cans, who can I donate them too? Truth be told, when we can return them to grocery stores, I don't even want to deal with the long lines. I would rather just get rid of them now.
I know Adopt-A-Pet in Fenton takes can and bottle donations year round, but right now they are running out of space due to all of the recent donations. I will certainly have plenty for them when they start accepting again, but in the meantime I am willing to donate the ones I have now - if anyone is taking them.
Do you know of any charitable organizations that are currently accepting bottles and cans? If so, let me know. I am willing to drop them off if they don't offer pick up. If no one is taking them, I will probably throw some in my recycling bin. I don't spend a lot of time in my garage, but I still would like to be able to walk through it.
A lot of us may need a new liver by the time this quarantine is over, but at least a lot of local charities will get money from our empties. Not necessarily a win win, but a good thing for the charities at least.
