Iowa’s Bottle Bill
COVID-19 UPDATE: The COVID-19 pandemic has led most U.S. deposit states to temporarily halt enforcement actions on retailers who temporarily suspend bottle and can redemption activities.
In Iowa, Governor Reynolds has suspended the regulatory provisions requiring retailers to accept empty deposit containers for duration of this disaster emergency. The state’s redemption centers are not impacted by this announcement and some remain open. Additionally, some retailers may still be accepting containers. Call ahead!
If you can’t find a location to redeem containers during the COVID-19 pandemic, rinse and save your bottles and cans for later redemption.
