CRV-label1

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.

The following items 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 items are not eligible for CRV: milk, medical food, wine, spirits, 100 percent fruit juice more than 46 ounces, vegetable juice more than 16 ounces and food & non-beverage containers.
