Michigan stores can start accepting bottle, can returns immediately
DETROIT Michigan stores can start accepting bottle and can returns, effective immediately, according to state officials. Bottle and can returns have been shut down in Michigan due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. All supermarkets with bottle return machines are required to start accepting returns by June 15, but the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy announced Friday that stores can start doing so immediately. Establish special or limited hours of operation for bottle returns. Periodically close bottle deposit facilities as needed for cleaning and supply management.
