Oregon Bottle Bill – Expands January 1st 2018
Updated: Sep 4, 2019
The Oregon Liquor Control Commission wants to remind consumers and retailers that additional beverages are being included in Oregon’s Bottle Bill and will have a refund value of 10 cents per container beginning January 1, 2018. This change came as the result of Oregon statute, ORS 459A.702.
Most beverages in bottles or cans that are sold in sealed glass, metal, and plastic in sizes from 4 ounces up to 1.5 liters will be included.
Some of the common beverages that will have a 10-cent refund value are:
Energy and Sports Drinks
Soda, beer, and water in sizes 3 liters or less will continue to have a refund value of 10 cents.
Beverages NOT included are:
Milk (Dairy and plant-based)
OLCC has created resources for retailers and customers leading up to the transition.
