Terms to Know About Redemption Centers Accepting Bottles and Cans

Redemption sites are typically small businesses who sort recyclable containers by hand before shipping them to a large recycling plant. Redemption centers offer money for bottles and cans that are marked with a cent price on their base. Here are some terms to know about turning in cans and bottles at redemption centers.

  • Recycle – Recycling is the act of processing certain waste items such as aluminum, glass, plastic and more for reuse. Recycling has been practiced throughout history but the push for recycling greatly increased when there has been shortages of particular materials like aluminum.
  • Deposit – The deposit is cash paid by distributors selling bottles, cans and other redeemable products. They pay a fee for each container, and an additional handling fee that goes towards a state fund. This fund is eventually profited by redemption centers who sort these items.
  • Out-of-state – Beverage containers should only be turned in at redemption centers that operate in the same state that the beverage was originally sold in. It is important that customers avoid trying to turn in bottles out-of-state, so that redemption sites can be paid fairly.
  • Litter – Littering is the act of leaving bottles, cans or other trash on the ground rather than disposing of them in a recycle or garbage can. Redemption centers opened to decrease littering and improve recycling rates and typically operate with the sole purpose of taking back empty beverage containers. Eligible containers include soda and beer cans.

    Containers eligible for redemption can be dropped off for cash at designated redemption sites or the store where the product was originally purchased in most states. Redemption centers provide an important recycling service to the public as well as for the environment.
