The IWMA is working hard to fix the State/CalRecycle’s failing CRV program. Until the laws are changed, here’s how you can help: Call and/or email CalRecycle (the state agency in charge of beverage container recycling). CalRecycle 916-323-3836Complaints About Recycling Centers – Complaints@calrecycle.ca.gov The beverage container recycling program was created in 1986 with the passage of Assembly Bill 2020. Consumers pay California Redemption Value (CRV) when they purchase beverages from a retailer and receive CRV refunds when they redeem the containers. This is a statewide program administered by CalRecycle. More information about the program is available on the CalRecycle website. What is CRV? Many beverage containers are eligible to be recycled for cash at a certified recycling center. CRV, or California Redemption Value, returns 5 cents for containers less than 24 oz. and 10 cents for containers larger than 24 oz. Most beverages containers other than milk, wine and distilled spirits are subject to CRV. Check If Eligible for CRV Check the label to see if a container is eligible for CRV (California Redemption Value): it will say CA Redemption Value, California Cash Refund, CA CRV, or CA Cash Refund. Aluminum cans are labeled on the top of the can, and plastic or glass containers are labeled on the side. Rinse Out Before Recycling Empty and rinse out beverage containers before redeeming them for cash. Moisture and dirt contaminate the recycling. The attendant may reject a pile if it is excessively contaminated. What's Eligible for CRV The following beverage containers are eligible for CRV: beer and malt beverages, wine coolers and distilled spirit coolers, carbonated drinks (fruit, water or soft), non-carbonated drinks (fruit, water, soft), coffee and tea beverages, 100 percent fruit juice less than 46 ounces, vegetable juice 16 ounces or less, and sports drinks. What's Not Eligible for CRV The following beverage containers are not eligible for CRV: milk, medical food, wine, spirits, 100% fruit juice more than 46 ounces, vegetable juice more than 16 ounces, and food & non-beverage containers.
