Re-Opening After COVID-19

We are opening to the public. Our hours will be: 8 am to 4 pm, Monday through Friday, and 9 am to 1 pm on Saturdays.

If you have Aluminum Cans, Plastics, and Glass for California redemption value (CRV) it must be drained and separated prior to entering the gates. All lids should be removed from plastic bottles prior to coming to our facility, we cannot have customers sorting and draining their material on our grounds. 

This is a new process for us, we’ve never required lids to be removed from plastic bottles before. If your material has lids and no fluid is present, we will still accept your material. However, if lids are not removed and fluid is present, we will ask you to take and re-sort your material off premises.

We will have employees stopping all vehicles entering the gate to verify your CRV material is separated and drained.

What we mean by separated is:

Cans must be kept separate from plastic and drained of all fluids.

All plastics must be drained, lids should be removed prior to entering premises and separated by number. Example: #1 PET plastics with #1 PET plastics, #2 HDPE plastic with #2 HDPE plastics, etc.

Glass must be sorted by colors: brown and green may be mixed together, but clear glass should only be with clear glass.

If you have non ferrous material, it must be sorted prior to entry as well.

Our biggest challenge as we open will be the cans, plastics, and glass. If your material is sorted prior to entry the process will go smoother and faster for all customers.

We will only have 1 lane going through the building for CRV, social distancing of 6 feet will be required. Please do not go ahead of other customers to grab our containers until your vehicle is inside of the building.

The 100 pound limit per day still applies to cans and plastics. The limit is 1,000 pounds per day for glass. If you go over the amounts allowed by CA law, your material will have to be purchased as scrap.

We will only allow 2 customers in the main office/lobby at a time. Please be patient as we are trying our best to serve our customers and keep everyone safe in doing so.

Please call with any questions.

We are very excited to be able to serve our community again!

      1. Thank you. It was confusing because above it says, “…lids should be removed…”. So I made sure of that and I didn’t even have to. I had 18 bins full of plastic bottles. Wish I had gotten your response before I went. Luckily, 99% of the bottles already had their caps removed beforehand because I used go to the other smaller Jolly Giant places in town and they required caps off.
