Aluminum Cans

Aluminum Cans

You can get cash for your cans! Most aluminum cans are eligible for CRV. Look for a label that says “CA Redemption Value,” or “CA Cash Refund.” If it’s eligible, take it to Eastern Regional Landfill Buyback Redemption Center.

Special Directions

Don’t crush your cans! Crushed aluminum cans are difficult for sorters to separate.

Before tossing in the recycling, be sure your cans are empty and dry! Liquids contaminate all recyclables in the bin, and reduce the likelihood all the materials can be recycled.
