Beverage container deposits are based solely on the size of the container and not the material it is made from. This means that there are two different deposit amounts: beverage containers designed to hold 1L or less equal a 10 cent deposit per container and beverage containers designed to hold over 1L equal a 25 cent deposit per container.
