Consumers are charged a 5¢ refundable deposit, plus a non-refundable container fee on each labeled beverage container. Consumers are refunded their 5¢ deposit when they return the labeled container to a redemption center and the container fee is used by the program to pay recyclers to process and recycle deposit beverage containers.
Effective September 1, 2015 until further notice, the non-refundable container fee will be 1¢ per container.
