OBRC. The Bottle Bill. A Cleaner Oregon.


How we do it – The OBRC system works because it's a win for everyone: consumers, retailers, distributors, and most importantly, the environment. In simplest terms, the system is built on a commitment to accountability. With our help, distributors report what they sell. Retailers report what they collect. OBRC is responsible for reconciling both, as well as reporting on recycling efforts.

By relying on mutual accountability and carefully controlled data delivery – plus a lot of elbow grease – we take millions of redeemable cans and bottles out of our environment and back into practical use. Our unique process is best described with a picture, so click here to follow the Oregon "nickel trail" .
