Prep Beverage Containers for Recycling

  • Empty all contents from bottles.
  • Do NOT flatten or crush beverage containers.
  • For glass bottles remove lids. Metal lids go in the recycling; mixed material and plastic lids go in the trash. Lids may stay on plastic bottles.
  • Always keep labels on beverage containers to ensure CRV redemption.
  • Do not stuff anything inside the beverage container! This can render it not recyclable.
  • Athens¬†accepts broken glass. Please place it in the recycle container.
