This program lets you turn your refundable bottles and cans into support for us! Here’s how it works:

Pick up Clynk bags at the SPCA, which have our bar code sticker on them. (There is a supply of bags on the side of the refundable return bin, in front of the SPCA. Stop by anytime to grab bags.)

Fill the bags with your refundable bottles and cans,  then drop back at the SPCA or at Hannaford in Ellsworth or Bar Harbor or at any other participating Hannaford in Maine. (Note: if you don’t have a specially tagged Clynk bag, not to worry. Drop your refundables off at the SPCA bin and we will make sure they are tagged appropriately.)

The proceeds will go to us! (And be sure to check out our CLYNK / Hannaford video here!!)
