Exciting new changes are coming!

Since its inception, the CCP has grown exponentially, funding over 641 organizations, municipalities, and not-for-profit organizations. Support has grown to more than one million dollars annually toward collection infrastructure, economic wellbeing, and environmental stewardship.

We are currently reviewing the future of this program to ensure that it aligns with our vision and purpose, which includes strategically improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the common collection system, and effectively recycling collected beverage containers into useful product streams and away from the landfill.

The CCP program, as it exists today, will not be available in 2023. We hope to announce an improved program in the future. 

Please check back for program updates and announcements.
