Each year, over 900 million beverage containers are sold in Hawai'i.
Consumers can help to recycle as many beverage containers as possible to prevent these containers from ending up in the waste stream or as litter in our community.
As an incentive, the Hawai'i Deposit Beverage Container Program places a 5¢ redeemable deposit on each beverage container.
Consumers get back their 5¢ when they return their containers to a redemption center.
Over 4.7 billion beverage containers have been recycled since the program began in January 2005.
Information and resources for schools interested in
developing a recycling program.
