Have you ever wondered if your drink container can be recycled through Return and Earn and you can’t tell by looking at the label? The Return and Earn app has a new feature to help! Try out the new container checker tool on the Return and Earn app by scanning the barcode on the label and it will tell you whether or not your container is eligible to be returned for a 10-cent refund.
