BottleDrop values our customers, staff, and the Oregon community. As always, we’re committed to providing safe access to container returns. We’ve made and continue making changes to follow state requirements so that we can continue providing access to this essential service.

All BottleDrop Redemption Centers are open and operating on summer hours: 8am – 7pm daily. We ask that customers maintain social distancing at all times and take note of signage, markings, and directions from staff while visiting our Centers.

BottleDrop is requiring face coverings to comply with Governor Kate Brown’s statewide Face Coverings Requirement. All customers age 5 and up are required to wear a mask or face covering to enter our Redemption Centers. Customers must also wear a face covering outside Redemption Centers when six feet of distance cannot be maintained, and face coverings are encouraged even when this distance can be maintained.

For insight on the OLCC’s redemption requirement reprieve for stores, check out this release.

We appreciate you adapting to these guidelines and safety measures to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
