Glass Bottles - CRV

Glass bottles with a CRV (California Redemption Value) are usually designed to hold liquids. Glass bottles can be various colors and shapes, though such items most commonly have a narrow necks and long bodies. Bottles that qualify for the California Redemption Value are usually labeled with "CA CRV."

Empty and drip-free.

California Refund Value (CRV) is the amount paid by consumers at the checkout stand and paid back to consumers when they recycle eligible aluminum, plastic, glass and bi-metal beverage containers at certified recycling centers. Most beverages packaged in aluminum, glass, plastic and bi-metal containers are eligible for CRV. Notable exceptions are milk, wine and distilled spirits, which are not included in the CRV program. The minimum refund value established for each type of eligible beverage container is 5 cents for each container under 24 ounces and 10 cents for each container 24 ounces or greater.
