How Does It Work

Beer container recycling
turns on a dime.

 

 

Everything can be recycled: what goes around comes around.

100% of beer packaging gets reused or recycled – from bottles and cans to cardboard boxes and
shrink wrap. In fact, we’d prefer it if you returned your beer in its original case — they’re designed for
shipping empty containers back to the brewery. Not returning your case means we need to create more
packaging for the return trip.


Where to go from here – return locations. Consumer convenience is important to ensure a successful program. That’s why there are over 1,140 return locations, including government liquor stores, rural agency stores, private retail liquor stores and private bottle depots. FIND ONE NOW
