Effective November 1st, 2019 you will see a deposit rate increase at all of our Regional Recycling locations!
All containers that were previously worth 5 cents are now worth 10 cents. That’s right, the deposit value on those containers is DOUBLE! And, because we refund the full deposit value when you recycle with us, we’re going to give you back ALL of it when you recycle with us.
That’s a really big change, and means a lot more change in YOUR pockets! This will make a big difference to all sorts of people and organizations that depend on collecting refundable beverage containers for their funding needs.
All of the 5 cent containers noted in our Can I Recycle This Container blog are now worth 10 cents! (The blog has some great information on other containers you might not be recycling, so it’s worth the read!)
What the deposit rate increase means for bottle drives:
This is great news for anyone who does bottle drives! With the increase in the deposit value you could raise up to $4,000 in as little as 4 hours.
We’ve always given you the best value on your bottle drives by providing FREE pick up and FULL refund, and now with the deposit rate increase, you are going to raise a lot more money! That’s a lot more money for your team, your organization or your school!

School recycling programs just got more valuable with the deposit increase!
