Here in Oregon, we pay a bottle deposit of 5 cents, for every bottle and can of soda, beer, juice drinks and water.
Then, we would take our emptys back to the grocery store to be redeemed.
Our town of Oregon City, started a pilot project several months ago.
The grocery stores in O.C. no longer take our bottles and cans.
We have a new facility, where you open an account to redeem your bottles and cans. You get special bags and an account card.
