Crushed Plastic Bottles

Start Saving For Our Next Redeemable Bottles and Cans Event

1st Sunday of Every Month

12 - 3 pm

800 Main Street South, Southbury, CT

In a single event, 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 who 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 per bag, at the EyeRecycle website, or at any event that Sustainable Southbury participates in.  

If you don’t have an EyeRecycle bag, our volunteers will transfer your bottles into an EyeRecycle bag with 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.

Thank you for helping our environment and keeping our community clean!
