Frequently Asked Questions

Some of your products say refillable.  How does that work?

For most bulk products, glass or aluminum packaging is used. When you’re done with the product, you’re welcome to keep the bottle or jar for your own reuse. Return it for refill and reuse by simply leaving it out on the next delivery day and we’ll bring it back, clean it and reuse!  If you received a pump or spray nozzle with the product, keep the pump for your next order, which will come with a cap. 

This includes Plaine Products and toothpaste jars, as well as all cleaning products. Unsure?  Shoot us a message!

For the delivery service, do I have to commit to a specific frequency or quantity?

Nope!  You are free to order any time, in whatever quantity you need. We currently deliver orders placed before 8pm on the next business day.

When will I be able to come in and refill my own containers?


We're working on it! Stay tuned, likely early to mid 2022.

What is the process to ensure safety in the COVID-19 era?

Great question. Luckily, the virus has not shown to be contact-based, and soap is very effective at killing any virus that's present. We thoroughly wash and returned items prior to reuse to ensure that nothing transfers.  

I’m curious about a product, but not sure. What’s your return policy if it isn’t right for me?

We have tested out these products and believe you’ll love them, but sometimes the products and the person just aren’t right for each other.  We accept returns in their original packaging within 14 days after purchase for a full refund. Shipping fees will not be refunded.  Email us at orders@byrdsfillingstation to let us know why you’re returning a product and arrange pick-up. Please note - face masks are not eligible for returns, and are Final Sale.

    I really like [insert product here].  When will you offer that?

    All of our products have been vetted and tested on us before putting them up for sale.  We’re constantly discovering new products and working on new partnerships.  Don’t see something you like?  Let us know at and we’ll look into it (or let you know why it isn’t in stock yet).

    I don’t live near San Mateo.  Why don’t you ship all of your products?

    Our primary goal in starting Byrd’s Filling Station as to reduce our carbon footprint in a number of ways.  Removing plastic, finding green products, and eliminating unnecessary packaging are some of the ways, but honestly it just isn’t eco-friendly to ship heavy packages of liquids and detergents to faraway places.
