No account is required to use the self-serve return machines or hand-count service at a BottleDrop Redemption Center. A BottleDrop account is required to use the Green Bag program.
Signing up for an account is free. A roll of 10 Green Bags costs $2.00, and a $0.40 fee is charged for each bag processed by BottleDrop. Bag Tag stickers are required for each bag and are free to print from any BottleDrop kiosk. All bag purchases and processing fees are debited from the account, so no payment is required to get started.
The $.40 processing fee is paid by the store/retailer (not charged to the BottleDrop account holder) for bags dropped at our partner retailer locations.
A BottleDrop account allows you to use the Green Bag program, the BottleDrop Plus program, the BottleDrop app, and the BottleBox program for BottleDrop Refillables. It also allows you to track your balance online, donate to charities, or transfer your refund value to an Oregon College Savings Plan.
The Green Bag program is intended for consumer use. BottleDrop does not offer a high volume business/corporate account. Businesses can work with their beverage distributor for container returns or return up to 350 containers per day using the BottleDrop reverse vending machines.
An individual who wants to redeem small quantities of containers (less than about 5 bags per month) from the workplace can create a BottleDrop account using their personal information. These accounts allow for the addition of a secondary account user who can share the account, or access it for oversight and reporting purposes.
Businesses that want to donate their empty beverage containers can do so using BottleDrop Give. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Use your BottleDrop account card at a BottleDrop kiosk to print a voucher, for up to $99.90 and take it to the cash register. Or withdraw it as a voucher at participating BottleDrop Plus retailers for 20% extra in-store credit.
