Important Update

BOTTLEBANK has introduced a new mobile app as of July 1, 2024.

Dear BOTTLEBANK Customer,

BOTTLEBANK has introduced a new mobile app as of July 1, 2024.

Please download our new BOTTLEBANK CA app using the links below.


If you still have funds in your old BottleBank account please withdraw at your earliest convenience. You may access your account by using the old BottleBank app or via the kiosk at Our Planet Recycling. For assistance withdrawing funds, please contact Customer Service: 833-SFBOTTL (732-6885).

Notes on Withdrawing Funds:

  • Transferring the current balance to the new system is not possible due to technical reasons.
  • There is a minimum transfer amount of $1.00 for both Venmo and PayPal. There is a $3.00 minimum amount to set up bank transfers in order to process the verification payments.
  • With all three transfer methods, there are no transaction fees paid by the customer, just the minimum amounts.
  • Customers who do not have the minimum transfer amount—but have at least $0.05 in their account—may withdraw funds via the kiosk at Our Planet Recycling (445 Bayshore Blvd, San Francisco, CA 94124) with no transaction fee.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by the recent changes.

Nonprofit Donations

and Stern Grove Festival



Bottles and Cans Help Fund Free Concerts

Exciting news! The San Francisco BottleBank is teaming up with the Stern Grove Music Festival for its first nonprofit partnership.

Now, when you come to enjoy the festival, you can also support the environment by donating your CRV-eligible containers.

Stop by the BottleBank tent in the West Meadow of Stern Grove and grab a free BottleBank blue bag.

Collect CRV-eligible beverage containers for your friends and fellow festival-goers.

Your bottles and cans (and boxed wine too!) all add up to dollars and cents for Stern Grove.

Drop off the blue bag at the BottleBank tent and help Stern Grove provide free concerts for San Francisco residents.

Join the BottleBank in making a difference at Stern Grove!
