Can I put my empty beverage containers in my blue box?

Warning message

Some recycling and solid waste facilities are temporarily closed, operating with reduced hours, or accepting a limited range of materials – please call ahead. Consider delaying your visit to facilities unless absolutely necessary by storing dry recyclables and other items at home temporarily.

Beverage containers should be taken to the bottle depot or retailer for recycling. Returning containers to the bottle depots ensures accurate tracking of recovery rates and program success. Additionally, you will receive a refund of your deposit!

Alternatively, you can save your beverage containers for individuals or community groups conducting bottle drive fundraisers.
