Bottle deposits are required by states that have enacted beverage container deposit laws (“bottle bills”) as a way to encourage residents to recycle bottles and other containers. Bottle deposits are small fees paid by customers when purchasing a beverage and reimbursed when the empty container is returned to a redemption center. Deposit amounts vary by state and depend on the type of beverage and size of the container.
Deposit fees vary from state to state, they range from $0.05 to $0.15 per single beverage container. In the case of Hint that is 12, 16-ounce bottles.
Hint has always encouraged our customers to recycle your hint bottles. Your Hint bottle is a fully recyclable PET container, including the cap, with a recycling number of '1'!
We encourage you to recover the bottle deposits collected by returning empty Hint bottles to a local recycling center.
