CRV - Plastic Beverage Containers

Plastic bottles (CRV) are bottles which require a deposit at the time of purchase.

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.
