What is CRV?
Beverage containers labeled CRV (California Refund Value) can be redeemed at Certied Redemption Centers. The CRV deposit is 5 per container under 24 oz. and 10 per container 24 oz. or more. Most recycling centers pay by the pound if you bring in a large load, so be sure to have only CRV containers to get the highest possible refund. You also can request to be paid on a per-container basis. If you bring in loads of fewer than 50 per material type just ask the recycler to pay by count instead of by weight. Call or visit website for more information about CRV Redemption Centers: www.bottlesandcans.com 1-800-RECYCLE 10 each
