Oregon Bottle Bill is container-deposit legislation passed in the
U.S. state of Oregon in 1971 and amended in 2007. It requires cans,
bottles, and other containers of carbonated soft drink, beer, and
(since 2009) water sold in Oregon to be returnable with a minimum
refund value. It is administered and enforced by the Oregon Liquor
Control Commission. The law is credited with reducing litter and
increasing container recycling. As a result, items which used to
make up around 40% of roadside litter now represent about 6%. With
return rates averaging 90%, another major benefit is in waste
reduction and resource conservation, particularly for aluminum. By
comparison, states without similar bills recycle on average 28% of
their containers. Beverage distributors retain all deposits not
reclaimed by consumers.
