When can we go back to crushing our containers?
On June 7, 2005 Govonor Lingle signed HB 1015 into law which allows for the flattening of metal and plastic beverage containers for deposit redemption. Certified redemption centers are now accepting flattened or crushed metal and plastic deposit beverage containers. Flattened containers are weighed at redemption sites to determine the deposit payment. The public is reminded that reverse vending machines will not accept flattened or crushed containers.
