REDEEM YOUR CRV BOTTLES & CANS FOR $$
What is CRV?
Beverage containers labeled CRV (California Redemption Value) can be redeemed at designated centers for 5¢ per container under 24 oz. and 10¢ per container 24 oz. and larger.
CRV only—it’s the law
State law requires recycling centers to pay California Redemption Value (CRV) refunds for loads that contain ONLY eligible CRV beverage containers.
Non-CRV materials must be removed from the load, or at the discretion of the recycling center, the load may be rejected or receive only scrap value.
Customers may still request to be paid by count for up to 50 CRV beverage containers of each material type: 50 glass, 50 aluminum, 50 plastic in one day.
CalRecycle administers the California Beverage Container Recycling and Litter Reduction Act.
