The new BottleDrop center on West Broadway and Garfield is the eighth location in Oregon.
Coordinators with the Oregon Beverage Recycling Cooperative says it’s simple to use. Just bring in any plastic, aluminum, or glass bottles and you get cash for them.
They say they hope the new, spacious facility will motivate more people to recycle.
“We’re hoping to encourage the residents to participate in the bottle bill, to really be aware of not littering, to recycle, and to utilize the bottle bill by returning their deposit containers,” said Cherilyn Bertges, Oregon Beverage Recycling Cooperative.
