Beverage Container Redemption Center Initial Registration
The owner/operator of a redemption center is required to notify MassDEP at least ten (10) business days in advance of commencing operations and to provide the agency with updated information twice per year (by January 1 and July 1). The owner/operator has the right to determine what types, sizes and brands of beverage containers the facility will accept.
Recommended Signage for Beverage Container Redemption Center
Redemption centers are required to advise consumers that it is illegal to redeem containers originally purchased in other states for deposit refunds in Massachusetts. Most do this by posting signs.
