Start Saving For Our Next Redeemable Bottles and Cans Event

Sunday, June 4th,

12 - 3 pm

800 Main Street South, Southbury, CT

Our April 30th event was a huge success - we collected over 25,000 bottles and cans that could have otherwise ended up in the landfill!


Based on this success, Sustainable Southbury, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and EyeRecycle will hold collection day events on the first Sunday of every month.

Start saving your redeemable bottles and cans now!  Earn cash back for your recycled bottles, and cans — there’s no waiting in line to put the containers through a machine.  EyeRecycle will pay you the full $0.05 per item. Not sure if it is redeemable? Look near the barcode or recycle symbol to find the label that says CT 0.05 Cent REFUND.

New - an express lane for people that have already bagged their redeemable bottles and cans in an EyeRecycle bag.  You simply drop off your bag and get paid.  EyeRecycle bags can be purchased at the event for $.50 cents/bag or at the EyeRecycle website.  Sustainable Southbury will also be selling the bags, at the Transfer Station, Saturday, June 3, from 7 am - 3 pm.  Look for the Sustainable Southbury canopy near the recycling area. 

If you don’t have an EyeRecycle bag, our volunteers will transfer your bottles into an EyeRecycle bag that has a fill line for counting.  Please make separate bags for the 1-liter bottles and the 2-liter bottles to speed up the transfer and ensure you receive the correct amount for your bottles.  Place redeemable glass bottles (no wine or liquor bottles) in your own small cardboard box or a 6, 12, 18, or 24-pack cardboard carrier - we cannot accept loose glass bottles.  A full EyeRecycle bag of 750ml bottles earns $10 cash back.

For future collection days, Sustainable Southbury will sell the EyeRecycle bags at the UCC Strawberry Festival at the UCC Church on June 10th and at the Walking on Sunshine event at Pomperaug High School on June 11th, and further Transfer Station dates to be announced.  Find out more on Sustainable Southbury's Our-Events page.

We hope to see you on June 4th. Thank you for helping our environment and keeping our community clean!
