Bottle Return

Bottle Return

RIT Dining operates an on-campus bottle return room allowing students to easily recycle beverage bottles. We accept clean plastic and glass bottles as well as cans. Customers are given a receipt that can be redeemed for Tiger Bucks, cash, or applied to their purchase at The Corner Store. The bottle return machine is located under Sol Heumann Hall (Building 47), Room A-088.
