Bottle Shed

The Town of Cape Elizabeth maintains a shed at the Recycling Center where residents can leave bottles, cans, and jugs so the Town may redeem the deposits. The proceeds from these returnables benefit Cape Elizabeth-based not-for-profit and non-profit service clubs and organizations that benefit the youth of Cape Elizabeth.

Annually, in October, the Recycling Committee makes applications available for organizations to apply for funding. The announcement and link to the application is posted on the town's website during the application acceptance period.  Funds are awarded in December.  In order to qualify for proceeds from the Bottle Shed, organizations must: be based in Cape Elizabeth; provide the organization's tax identification number and a W-9; and submit a fully completed application by the deadline.  Organizations may submit no more than one application per year.  For more information, please contact Director of Public Works Jay Reynolds.
