East Portland redemption center opens July
The Oregon Beverage Recycling Cooperative opens their fourth center in east Portland's Menlo Park Plaza in July. Amanda Chezem, on-site supervisor at the Bottle Drop Oregon Redemption Center in Oregon City, empties a load of recyclables from a full machine.
A new, centralized returnable container redemption center is opening in July in mid-county's Menlo Park Plaza.

Part of a partnership between grocery stores and distributors, the new site is located at 12403 N.E. Glisan St., in the old Kelley's Furniture Store, more recently home to a Dollar Books franchise.

Officials of the site's operators, Oregon Beverage Recycling Cooperative, say the new facility will be nearly twice the size of their Oregon City location, and will have newer, more efficient machines.

The new center, in outer Northeast Portland, features a system allowing after-hours returns and automatic crediting.

Under current law, grocery stores within a mile-and-a-half of a redemption center can forgo accepting returnable containers.

The east Portland location is the fourth in Oregon.

Currently, there are three other OBRC redemption centers in the state: one in Oregon City, one in Wood Village and one in Salem.

Over the next ten years, OBRC has plans to open 45 to 50 more redemption centers, a company official told lawmakers in Salem last week.
