Reopening Oregon - OLCC Guidance
COVID-19 Business Continuity Information for AlcoholA comprehensive list of information related to alcohol, liquor licensing, and compliance.
Through May 31, OLCC did not enforce the requirement for retailers to accept empty beverage container returns. With the Governor's reopening plan underway, OLCC will link compliance enforcement to the phase a county is in (Baseline, Phase 1, Phase 2, Phase 3).
Find the date each county entered each phase and the date required for resumptions to have begun: Date By County for Bottle Bill Redemption Return (08/21/2020).
Many people have been saving their empty beverage containers, and while we want to give customers a chance to return their accumulated containers, we also don't want to cause unsafe conditions. Our industry partners, including Oregon Beverage Recycling Cooperative and Northwest Grocers Association, are creating systems to accommodate returns while maintaining physical distancing and other requirements to ensure the safety of customers and store personnel.
BottleDrop redemption centers, operated by the Oregon Beverage Recycling Cooperative (OBRC), will remain open. OBRC will also continue to operate BottleDrop Express drop sites and dealer redemption centers.
