Green Earth Recycling

The State legislature passed the Beverage Container Recycling and Litter Reduction Act in 1986 in response to a need to reduce litter and establish a beverage container recycling program in California. The Act also set a refund value on beverage containers and established a system for consumers to conveniently redeem their containers.

When a beverage distributor sells beverages to a retailer, such as a supermarket, they are required to make California Redemption Value (CRV) payments into the Division's Beverage Container Recycling fund (Fund). The distributor passes the CRV charge on to the price of the product, Retailers show this portion of the sales price on receipts so consumers know the amount they can receive if they recycle the containers.

Consumers can get their CRV back by redeeming their beverage containers at a certified recycling center. As a certified center operator, Green Earth Recycling will pay CRV to the public for empty eligible beverage containers.
