Norwalk Offer Residents Free Recycling Redemption Pop-up Events, Starting Sept. 16

(Norwalk, Conn.)  Today, September 15, 2023, the City of Norwalk announced its new free mobile bottle redemption pop-up events, beginning tomorrow, September 16, in partnership with EyeRecycle. These events will allow residents to recycle their collected cans and plastic and glass bottles for cash.

The EyeRecycle bottle redemption pop-up events will take place at 98 South Main Street on:

  • Saturday, September 16th from 10:00 AM – 1:00 pm;
  • Monday, September 25th from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM; and 
  • Monday, October 9th from 3:00 PM – 6:00 PM. 

The EyeRecycle program aims to help residents reclaim their money while recycling aluminum cans and plastics and glass bottles. 

Here's how the pop-up events events work:

  • It's a free service that’s just for Norwalk residents.
  • The program accepts plastic and glass bottles and aluminum cans.
  • There’s no limit on the number of containers a resident can bring.
  • A resident instantly receives coins or cash for each 5-cent redeemable container.

The City of Norwalk asks that users pack any glass bottles in a box. A resident may bring their own redeemable bottles and cans in any bag or box.  They will also have the option of purchasing an EyeRecycle reusable bag with a fill line for 50 cents, which will streamline the bottle redemption process. A single EyeRecycle bag filled with cans and bottles will be worth $10.00.

We ask that residents enter from the South Main Street entrance to help with traffic flow through the John H. Ryan Park Parking Lot, located at 98 South Main Street.
