Bottle & Can Deposit Increased to 10 cents on April 1st, 2017.
Save those bottles and cans! Oregon was the first state to enact the Bottle Bill, and now we’re the first state in the nation to boost a previously established deposit amount. On April 1st our deposit went from 5 to 10 cents (even if it still says 5 cents on the label). The following types of beverage containers under three liters are included in Oregon’s Bottle Bill:
- Water: Regular, flavored, mineral & soda water, though we’re a fan of good ol’ Central Oregon fresh tap water.
- Carbonated soft drinks (soda): This doesn’t include kombucha.
- Beer & Malt Beverages: This doesn’t include cider or wine.
Stay tuned for the following types of bottles and cans being included in 2018!
- Hard cider
- Fruit juice
- Coconut water
