To make it quick and easy, we take an average of your bags so that no one has to count!

For example, if you have 30 bags of cans, we pick 2 bags at random, count them and take the average. Since you will be filling the bags consistently the same this is the fastest and most convenient way of handling large bottle drives.

Checks will be mailed within two weeks of the bottle drive date. If non-redeemable containers are found during sorting we will deduct them from the total.

How To Sort:

Separate containers into bags using the following categories:

  • Cans
  • 1 liter plastic
  • 2 liter plastic
  • Below 1 liter plastic

Use the same sized bags for all your returnables. Fill them as much as you can while still being able to tie them closed.

Glass bottles must be placed in 6 pack containers which we can provide for you.

After several years of managing the BFAIR Bottle & Can Redemption Center, BFAIR acquired The Center in July 2019. BFAIR was grateful for the opportunity to continue to provide employment for individuals with disabilities while also playing an important role in north Berkshire.


You may choose to donate your monies from your return of bottles/cans to BFAIR.
