San Jose, CA (PRWEB) December 12, 2013
Ranch Town Recycling announces a new change in California Redemption Value (CRV) recycling. The California Department of Resources, Recycling and Recovery has ruled that CRV beverage containers that include non-CRV material will no longer be eligible for refund at recycling centers. The new law went into effect November 1, 2013. This updated rule eliminates the “commingled” per-pound payment rate that is somewhat lower than the CRV-only rate.
Customers should be aware of the new changes before going to Ranch Town Recycling or any other recycling center and make sure that all their items are CRV. Most beverages packaged in aluminum, glass, plastic and bi-metal containers are eligible for CRV. Notable exceptions include milk, wine and distilled spirits, which are not included in the CRV program.
Most consumers who redeem their empty bottles and cans at recycling centers may not notice a change, since many of those businesses already accept only CRV materials. Now, this change will ensure only CRV-eligible containers are redeemed for their redemption value.
