Refillable Beer Bottles


Click on the tabs below for reuse, recycling or safe disposal options.

Local beer brewers operate an independent deposit-refund system for refillable beer bottles such as industry standard Labatt, Molson and Quidi Vidi bottles. Refillable beer bottles are not part of MMSB’s Used Beverage Container Recycling Program.

You can return refillable beer bottles to most beer retailers or to a Brewers Bottle Depot to receive a refund. Imported beer bottles and beer cans should be recycled with your Beverage Containers.

Please make sure to return your beer bottles empty, clean, and dry.  By not leaving debris in beer bottles before returning them, we ensure the integrity of the bottles, facilitate effective cleaning and sanitization, protect the environment, and promote the long-term reusability of these containers.
