High-Volume Drop Account
Raise funds for your nonprofit by organizing a big can and bottle drive.
How it Works
Registered 501(c)(3) organizations that are hosting high-volume can drives, (for example, collecting several thousand containers in a few hours or days) can collect containers with and Oregon refund value, sort by material type, schedule an appointment to drop them off at one of our processing plants, and receive a check for the refund amount. Drop locations for High-Volume accounts include Clackamas, Eugene, Medford, North Bend/Coos Bay, Pendleton, and Redmond.
