You can get cash for your bottles and cans! Most tea bottles and cans smaller than 16oz are eligible for CRV. Look for a label that says “CA Redemption Value,” or “CA Cash Refund.” If it’s eligible, take it to the Eastern Regional Landfill Buyback Redemption Center.
Don’t crush your bottles or cans! Crushed containers are difficult for sorters to separate.
Make sure bottles and cans are empty and dry. Liquids contaminate all recyclables in the bin. Bottle caps are okay to recycle as long as they are attached to the bottle.
