Recycle for Rescues
In 2022, this program alone brought over $21,000 to the animals at OHS and ensured they were taken care of while in their home-between-homes.
- Pick up a Blue Bag from either the OHS Salem or Portland shelter, or the OHS Thrift Store in downtown Salem.
- Load the Blue Bag with your recylable bottles and cans at home.
- When the Blue Bag is full, simply drop it off at one of BottleDrop’s redemption locations.
- BottleDrop will scan the QR code on the outside of the Blue Bag when it’s received and 100% of proceeds will automatically go back to helping OHS Salem and Portland shelter pets and programs.
At the OHS Portland shelter, a BottleDrop Blue Bag dispenser is located in the lobby. At the OHS Salem shelter, a dispenser is located both in the lobby, and another just outside the front door. At the OHS Thrift Store, a dispenser is located just inside the front door.
