Why the HI Bottle Bill is good for Kaua'i

  • Increased statewide redemption rate of aluminum, plastic, and glass beverage containers to around 70%
  • Reduces litter in our parks and beaches 
  • Provides fundraising opportunities for community organizations and schools
  • Initiated new recycling habits overall

Here's how the Bottle Bill works: 4 easy steps

  1. A 5¢ deposit per beverage container is charged to the purchase of GLASS, ALUMINUM, and PLASTIC containers defined under the law.
  2. A 1¢ non-refundable container fee is also assessed to support the costs of recycling and program administration.
  3. Deposit containers are marked with a label that reads "Hawaiʻi 5¢" or "HI 5¢".
  4. You return HI5 beverages and receive payment based upon the weight or hand count (200 or less) of your beverage containers. 

 

What's In:

Size: 2-liter (68 oz) or smaller

Drink: Water, juice, soda, tea, coffee, beer, malt beverages, mixed spirits (<15% alcohol), some mixed wine (<7% alcohol) and alcohol free wines, drink mixer, and sports drinks.

Material Type: glass, plastic (#1 & #2), aluminum, and bi-metal

Labeled: HI 5¢, HAWAII 5¢, Hawaii 5¢

What's Out:

Size: larger than 68 fluid ounces ( larger than 2-liter or gallon jugs)

 Hand Counts

Up to 200 can be counted at a time. Over 200 can be counted at the discretion of the redemption center staff. Customer hand counts will not be excepted
