I have another question that seems to me stupid, but I can't answer it with confidence. When you collect recyclables, then arrive at a special place, and then hand it over (whether in exchange for payment or not), what do you call it? 'Surrender' doesn't work, 'take out' doesn't work, 'hand over' only refers to the physical act of transferring things (whereas I want to imply that it has been accepted, not just that it physically ended up in the hands of a recycling person). It's almost funny, but I struggle to find a good word for this. We have a word 'сдавать' in Russian. It means you hand something over, and it's accepted (luggage, essay, anything). So I need some corresponding term.
Transfer might be the best word for what you want, because it's very generic but implies that the handoff has been completed.
