Drink Responsibly: Recycle the Bottle

Posted: Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Buellton, CA -

If you're drinking those purified, healthy, pH-controlled, deionized, ionized, or "smart" bottled waters that are so in style today, are you aware of the damage to the landfill their containers can cause? When you open one of these, please have a plastics recycle box or trash bucket handy to prevent them from ending up with other degradable waste.

Plastic bottles don't degrade, but sit in the landfill for possibly centuries. However, a convenient alternative is to either dispose of them in the "recycle" (blue) category - or better yet, take your recycle box to one of the recycling centers available here in the Santa Ynez Valley. .

When you bring your bottles in, you can get a cash refund of about $.05 per bottle. (I was pleasantly surprised that one of the recycling center pays in two dollar bills!). Here are the two known recycling centers available:

Buellton: 97 Commerce Drive (off of McMurray Rd.)
Hours: Weds-Saturday, 8:30am - 4pm (closed for lunch 11-11:30am)

Solvang, behind El Rancho Market
Hours: Tues, Weds 9am-4pm, Fri, Sat 9am-4pm

Send those plastics back for recycling and get reimbursed for it!
