Can and Bottle Recycling

Clean out your pantry or garage and help BrightSide Animal Center at the same time by recycling your refundable bottles and cans through us. This program raises thousands of dollars a year to help shelter animals find homes. BrightSide offers several convenient drop-off locations; please put your cans and bottles in kitchen trash bags and drop off at a collection point near you.

We are Looking for Volunteers

We are always looking for volunteers, individuals and groups, who would like to help us sort our bottle and can donations. It might be a little sticky, but every bottle and can sorted makes a huge difference to supporting our mission. Call 541-504-0101, email [email protected], or stop by the BrightSide Animal Center Thrift Store at 838 NW 5th St in Redmond and we will get you started.
