BREWER – The coronavirus is behind changes in the way some bottle redemption facilities are doing business.
Brewer Redemption Center is now doing curbside recycling.
“There’s lines on the tar here that say 1, 2, 3 and they are separated six feet apart, so customers will just bring their bottles and stand right there, wait for me to come out,” said Airianne Hatt, who co-owns the redemption center. “They’ll tell me their name and I’ll go in and count their bottles, come out to their car and bring them their money.”
Hatt says they are using bleach in between each order to kill germs.
Brewer Redemption Center will be open until Sunday, and then they are taking a break until April 9.
