Understanding CRV Recycling

California Redemption Value (CRV) is the regulatory fee paid to consumers when recycling beverage containers at certified recycling centers in California. Independent businesses usually operate these centers, which are certified by the CalRecycle Department. Recycle From Home™ is the ONLY authorized mobile recycling center in California.

In order to receive CRV in California, you must present all containers marked “CA Cash Refund” or contain similar CA CRV messages. Milk, wine, and non-beverage containers are some containers we don’t take.
