6/4/2023 - Bottle and Can Redemption

Every first Sunday of the month, Sustainable Southbury and EyeRecyle will host a free redemption day in Southbury. All redeemable bottles and cans will be accepted. Get cash back! EyeRecycle will pay you the full $0.05 per item. 25,000 bottles and cans that could have otherwise ended up in the landfill were collected at the last event.

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.

Sustainable Southbury will be selling the EyeRecycle bags at the Transfer Station, Saturday, June 3, from 7 am - 3 pm. Look for the Sustainable Southbury canopy near the recycling area. Each bag cost $0.50. Bags can also be purchased at the EyeRecycle website at or at each redemption event.

If you don’t have an EyeRecycle bag, the volunteers will transfer your plastic bottles and cans into an EyeRecycle bag that has a fill line for counting. Please make separate bags for the 1 liter plastic bottles and the 2 liter plastic bottles. Place redeemable glass bottles (no wine or liquor bottles) in a small cardboard box or a 6, 12, 18, or 24-pack cardboard carrier - we cannot accept loose glass bottles and they break in the bags.

Redeemable items say CT 5 Cent REFUND near the barcode or recycle symbol on the label.

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 at
