CRV - Bimetal Beverage Containers

Bi-metal (CRV) containers are made with two types of metals joined together, such as Sapporo beer cans, and have a California Redemption Value.

Empty and drip-free.

As of Jan. 1, 2024, there are new eligible beverage containers for redemption in the California Beverage Recycling Program. Consumers pay CA Redemption Value (CRV) when they purchase beverages from a retailer. Find changes to the program and redemption locations here, or call 1-800-RECYCLE.
