Featured Frequently Asked Questions

Green Bags can be purchased at all Redemption Centers and bag drop locations. A box of Green Bags has 10 bags, and each bag can hold between 70 and 90 containers.

Green Bags will be processed and credited to your account within 7 days. In the event BottleDrop is unable to process a bag and credit your account within 7 days, we will provide a bag credit based on recent activity in your account.

All beverage containers with an Oregon refund value can be returned in your Green Bags. Do not crush containers. You may mix plastic, glass, and aluminum bottles and cans in the same bag. Please make sure to put no more than 30 glass bottles in each bag to keep the bag’s weight under our 20 lb. limit.

The quickest way to sign up is with a valid Oregon ID. We ask for an Oregon ID to verify your identity and address to help keep your account secure. We do not use personal information for any purpose other than to set up your account and contact you if there are issues with your account.

Additionally, a valid SMS capable phone number is required to create a BottleDrop account online or at a BottleDrop Kiosk. Customers without an SMS capable phone may contact BottleDrop Customer Service and provide a valid email address and valid identification with a mailing address to qualify for a BottleDrop account.

Please note, an Oregon ID is not required to get an account. Customers signing up online or at a kiosk without an Oregon ID will simply need to have their account verified by our customer service team.

You can drop up to a total of 15 bags every 90 days, i.e. you can drop just one bag, or as many as 15 bags, when you visit a BottleDrop.

A few examples.

You may drop 15 bags on a single trip to the BottleDrop every 90 days.

You may drop 5 bags on one trip to BottleDrop on October 1, then come back within 90 days (by December 29) and drop 10 more bags.

You may drop 7 bags on October 1, 4 bags on November 15, and 4 bags on December 29.

You may drop 3 bags on consecutive days until you reach your limit of 15 bags, and then you may not drop any more bags until the next 90 day period begins at which point you may drop 3 more with the first and subsequent 4 days.

Any time you exceed 15 bags per 90 day period, your account will be deactivated so that you will no longer be able to drop bags. You will still have access to your balance. BottleDrop will close your account if you  repeatedly exceed bag limits or drop more than 15 bags on the same day.

Yes, the same card and bags can be used at any BottleDrop location.
