All of our Beer Universe locations are New York registered Redemption Centers

Here at Beer Universe, we are committed to making the world a better and cleaner place.  We believe that a small deposit pays big dividends in the conservation of energy and valuable resources.

In New York State, most cans and bottles are subject to a 5 cent deposit at the time of purchase. However, you can earn that money back!

Just bring your recyclables to Beer Universe and we will count them accurately and pay in cash on the spot OR call us if you have more than 2,000 and we’ll pick it up.

WE help make it work for you!

We recycle any can & bottle with a NY Refund Label of 5 Cent.

You get your full five cents Cash Back and don’t have to deal with the hassle of lines at machines anymore.

Just bring your recyclables to any of our Beer Universe locations and we take care of the rest. Or schedule a pick up online by contacting us. (restrictions apply)

Don't trash 'em, ... cash ‘em!

The NY Returnable Container Act has helped...


We take pre-counted bags if you would like to bring them in. Please feel free to count and put them in a clear plastic bag.

Write the quantity on each bag, hand it over to one of our staff members, and they will issue a redemption ticket that can be cashed at the Register.

These tickets can be redeemed for cash, or can be used to buy beverages and other products from the store. Our staff members reserve the right to audit any bag that doesn’t comply with company policy.
