Hawaii Deposit Beverage Container Program
Since January 2005, Hawaii’s Deposit Beverage Container (DBC) program has assisted residents to recycle over 7 billion containers. Through recycling, consumers are helping to remove these containers from the waste stream and also reducing litter in the community.
The DBC program certifies independent recycling companies to operate Certified Redemption Centers (CRCs) statewide. These CRCs provide Hawaii consumers with refunds of the 5¢ deposit fee that is paid for eligible containers.
