Tim Hortons is launching a new pilot project in Vancouver in partnership with Return-It that will give guests the option of paying a deposit for a reusable and returnable cup so they can help us on our mission to reduce single-use waste.
The pilot project builds on similar testing by Tim Hortons in Ontario last year and will give guests the option of paying a $4 deposit to receive a reusable and returnable cup at one of 10 participating Tims restaurants in Vancouver.
Guests can return their reusable cup to any one of those restaurants or to one of 11 additional Return-It stations located across the city, including in transit stations and other public locations. Guests will then receive their deposit back via e-transfer.
The 11 Return-It stations will also collect single-use cups from Tim Hortons and other brands for recycling.
The pilot project will help evaluate a scalable solution for a reusable cup program as well as the viability of a broader, permanent program that would allow single-use cups to be collected for recycling at a number of public drop-off points.
