Since January 2005, Hawaii’s Deposit Beverage Container (DBC) program has assisted residents to recycle over 10 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.


Reminder: Caps should be off containers when redeeming by weight

Pursuant to Hawaii Administrative Rules §11-282-61
