You can save for yourself, get your kids started, or make a gift to a friend, your grand kids, or anyone with a qualifying plan. All you need is a BottleDrop account and an Oregon College Savings Plan account.

Yes. You must have a BottleDrop account to use BottleDrop to transfer your bottle and can refunds to an Oregon College Savings Plan account. Note that you don’t have to use Green Bags.

Yes. After you have connected an Oregon College Savings Plan account with your BottleDrop account, you can create automatic recurring transfers. Log in to your account, click on College Savings, then click on “Set up recurring transfers.” Note that there is a minimum $5 transfer, and your BottleDrop account must have sufficient funds for transfers to be processed.
It’s simple. BottleDrop has partnered to securely connect BottleDrop accounts to Oregon College Savings Plan accounts. When you initiate a transfer from your BottleDrop account, we set up a secure transfer, and the funds will be placed in the Oregon College Savings plan that you selected when setting up the transfer. The minimum transfer is $5, and a recurring transfer will be rejected if your BottleDrop account does not have sufficient funds.
On the 25th of each month, BottleDrop will initiate the transfers, and funds will be withdrawn from your BottleDrop account for recurring transfers. Allow approximately two weeks for the funds to appear in your Oregon College Saving Plan account.
The program only works with Oregon College Savings Plan accounts.
