Resolve to redeem in 2018

Beginning Jan. 1, 2018, more types of beverage containers started carrying a 10-cent deposit. These include bottles and cans for tea, coffee, fruit juice, coconut water, hard cider and kombucha. Beer, soft drinks and water containers continue to be accepted at some grocery stores and BottleDrop Centers.

Not accepted: Wine, liquor, dairy or plant-based milk, infant formula and metal cans that require a can opener.

Other changes to the statewide Bottle Bill took place in April 1, 2017. That’s when consumers started getting a dime back for carbonated beverages and water containers recycled at a return center.

When Oregonians take bottles separately to be redeemed, they make it easier for our local recyclers to turn them into something new. Many of these containers are recycled right in our region.

Portland residents can redeem beverage containers by taking containers to a local retailer or to a BottleDrop Redemption Center for money. As always, bottles and cans can still be set out for curbside collection without collecting that dime. At curbside, recycle aluminum and plastic beverage bottles in your blue recycling roll cart and glass bottles in your yellow recycling bin.
