New way to return bottles and cans


RETURNING CANS FOR CASH CAN HELP ANYONE WHO NEEDS A FEW EXTRA DOLLARS. BUT, YOU MAY BE SURPRISED AT HOW MUCH REDEMPTION CENTERS MAKE FROM YOUR RETURNS. NEWS 4’S MIKE CEJKA HAS MORE ON THIS.. MIKE. IF YOU’RE NOT SO FOND OF STANDING IN FRONT OF ONE OF THOSE EMPTY BOTTLE RECEPTALCES AT AREA STORES, THERE IS A NEW FANGLED WAY TO DO THE RETURN. MOST PEOPLE THAT RECYCLE ACQUIRE QUITE A COLLECTION OF CANS AND BOTTLES BEFORE THEY TO DO THE RETURN. I DONE IT, YOU’VE DONE IT, LUGGING THOSE HUGE BAGS INTO STORE. NOW THERE’S A NEW WAY TO GET RID OF THE BULK. ((ALL YOU DO IS WALK UP TO THE FRONT COUNTER AND THEN WE HAVE BOYS BACK HERE THAT WILL GO BACK AND THEY SORT ALL THE CANS AND BOTTLES AND SEND THEM BACK TO THE DISTRIBUTORS.)) THIS IS ESPECIALLY HELPFUL FOR CHURCH GROUPS AND CHARITIES THAT MAY DO COLLECTION DRIVES. AND IT SEEMS LIKE MOST PEOPLE STILL HAVE A PREFERENCE AS TO GETTING RID OF ALL THESE BOTTLES AND CANS. ((I’VE BEEN CARRYING THIS BIG BAG IN MY TRUNK FOREVER CAUSE I DON’T LIKE TO DO IT MYSELF AND I SAID OH, THIS IS EASY.)) ((YOU BRING IT BACK TO THE PLACE WHERE YOU SHOP. I ALWAYS SHOP HERE. SO IT’S NO DIFFERENT SO I CONTINUE TO COME WHERE I BRING MY BOTTLE TO.)) MANAGERS OF MANY GROCERY AND BEVERAGE CHAINS DON’T SEEM OVERLY CONCERNED THAT THIS WILL IMPACT THEIR BUSINESS. ((WE DEFINITELY SEE CUSTOMERS COME INTO THE STORE AFTER THEY DO THEIR BOTTLE RETURNS AND REDEEM THEIR MONEY BACK AND SHOP FOR NEW GROCERIES FOR THE WEEK.)) ((PEOPLE ARE JUST RELYING ON US TI TAKE BOTTLES AND CANS. CASH FOR CANS CAN BE OPEN AND IT’S NOT GOING TO AFFECT US.)) WHAT YOU MAY NOT KNOW IS THAT SOMEONE IS MAKING SOME MONEY OUT OF THE BOTTLE BILL THAT’S BEEN AROUND FOR ALMOST 30 YEARS. RECYCLING CENTERS CAN GET AS MUCH AS 3.5 CENTS PER BOTTLE. TOMRA RECYCLING IN NEW YORK HAS PULLED IN AS MUCH AS 17 MILLION DURING A QUARTER, AND UNRETURNED BOTTLES HAVE NETTED THE STATE 100 MILLION DURING A YEAR. AS WITH ANYTHING, IT’S ALL ABOUT THE MONEY… ((WOW, AND I GET MONEY BACK TOO.)) IF YOU’RE NOT SO CONCERNED ABOUT GETTING MONEY BACK, YOU CAN DONATE YOUR REFUND TO A CHARITY. CASH FOR CANS HAS A PRESELECTED

  1. CT, HI, IA, MA, ME, NY VT and CA CRV (<24 Ounce) has a 5 cent per container redemption on mostly soda and alcoholic/spirit containers as long as labeled with such info, and you bring to a machine at certain locations mostly stores where you get the redemption value back that you payed in addition upon purchase to drink. In MI and OR, plus CA CRV (24+ ounce) you do the same but are 10 cents per container, If you do not desire to get the redemption back if you think it is not worth your time, then just give it to someone in need who collects.

    DO Not throw away Recyclables in the garbage/waste/trash bins!!!
