Oregon's Deposit Bottle Bill Expands!

New, now included images of coffee, tea, kombucha, juice, sport drink bottles

Oregon's Bottle Bill has been around a while, since 1971 in fact! Very few changes have been made to the bill until recently. 

In April of 2017 the deposit amount was raised for the first time ever from five-cents to a dime. 

On January 1, 2018 the accepted list was expanded to include more items. These new items include bottles and cans for coffee, tea, kombucha, coconut water, energy and sport drinks, hard cider and juice. All of the previously accepted items remain the same.

Recycling Markets Update

For many years, Beaverton residents have been committed to reducing, reusing and recycling. Materials collected for recycling in Beaverton are sorted, sold in international markets, and used as inputs to make “new” products. In recent weeks, however, there have been changes in global recycling markets that are impacting recycling collection in the USA and around the world. While you may find that certain materials are no longer accepted at your local recycling depot or grocery store drop off, there are no changes to your curbside recycling service.

Please visit our Recycling Markets page to learn more and for updates.
