This week, it was announced the delayed service has been launched.
Cosmo said it’s been impacted by the pandemic and the service offers a way for people to donate their deposit containers in support of people with disabilities.
Those interested can register to donate their cans, bottles, milk jugs and juice cartons to Cosmo and have a pick-up scheduled as well as a choice of receiving regular collections.
Cosmo said donations are temporarily valued at $5 per full bag due to reduced staffing levels unable to do exact audits during the pandemic.
Subscribers can have a charitable tax deduction receipt emailed to them for the donations of deposit containers.

Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you need to know:
Symptoms can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing — very similar to a cold or flu. Some people can develop a more severe illness. People most at risk of this include older adults and people with severe chronic medical conditions like heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend frequent handwashing and coughing into your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible and maintaining a distance of two metres from other people if you go out. In situations where you can’t keep a safe distance from others, public health officials recommend the use of a non-medical face mask or covering to prevent spreading the respiratory droplets that can carry the virus.
