People's Depot

The People’s Depot (TPD) is a community-led, independent bottle redemption service for informal can and bottle collectors (canners) born out of the COVID-19 pandemic when access to bottle redemption became limited and people were in critical need of income. The People’s Depot currently collects and sorts cans and bottles at three locations around Portland. Operations are run by canners, as a project of Ground Score, a local association of canners, dumpster divers and others who rely on the informal recovery of discarded materials.
