Every time you purchase an eligible beverage container from a retailer in California, you pay a nickel or dime deposit on that container. So how do you get that deposit back? Return those empty bottles and cans to a certified recycling center! Visit our website at urecycle.org and use the CalRecycle search function to look for centers in your area. If you can’t find a recycling center in a convenient location, you can also search for retailers that redeem in-store.
