Lincoln County stores will be required to accept redeemable bottles and cans this week as more Oregon counties move into lower COVID-19 risk categories.

Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) will allow stores at “moderate” and “low-risk” levels to limit hours for accepting container redemption “to reduce the impact of processing beverage container returns.”

Most stores across Lincoln County have already been accepting returns, but all retailers must accept empties by Wednesday, March 3.

OLCC will continue a temporary non-enforcement posture for stores in counties with either “extreme” or “high” risk levels that choose not to redeem containers. However, stores in “extreme” or “high” risk counties can choose to accept containers.

Regardless of a county’s risk status, stores may continue to charge a deposit on redeemable containers.

BottleDrop redemption centers, operated by the Oregon Beverage Recycling Cooperative will remain open.

For any questions, contact the Bottle Bill program at OLCC.BottleBill@oregon.gov.
