New BottleDrop Opens in Eugene

BOTTLEDROPEUGENE, Ore. — BottleDrop stations are all over Oregon and now, Eugene has its first one.

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.

    Wow, what a wonderful news article. No one bothered to explain why these laws were changed, or even give any perspective on things. Let’s be honest, no one besides bums are going to get in their car with a bunch of filthy cans and drive to a “redemption center”, which will be filled with sed bums, to get their $2 in bottle deposits. This is the nail in the coffin for this law, and is only in place because grocery stores don’t want to deal with handling all the filthy cans they get every day.
