You can get cash for your bottles! Most beverage bottles 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.
Be sure your bottles are empty and dry before recycling. Liquids can contaminate the rest of the recycling. See bottle caps for a tip to make sure your metal caps are recycled.
