Beverage Containers

Beverage containers, such as bottles and cans, are accepted at all local transfer stations in Container recycling and curbside in Erving, Gill, and Montague. Returnable bottles and cans (the ones that say “MA 5 cents Deposit” on them) can be returned to a redemption center. Some transfer stations accept redeemable containers separately.

Rinse containers and remove straws before recycling. It's okay to replace caps and lids on bottles prior to recycling. However, caps and lids are too small to be recycled when loose in the recycling stream.
