CRV Daily Load Limits



Effective January 1, 2014, certified recycling centers in California are restricted by law from receiving loads of CRV empty beverage containers, and paying CRV to any person, operation or entity who is not certified by CalRecycle, Division of Recycling (Division) and who is delivering a load of material in excess of 100 pounds of aluminum or each type of plastic beverage containers, or 1,000 pounds of glass beverage containers, per day. It is also a violation of the law for a recycling center to split loads in excess of the daily load limits into multiple transactions, or accept in any one day an aggregate total of material in excess of the daily load limits.

Per CalRecycle. Phone # 916-324-8598

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) they must be drained and separated prior to entering the gates. All liquids should be removed from plastic bottles prior to coming to our facility, we cannot have customers sorting and draining their material on our grounds. 

If your material has lids and no fluid is present, we will still accept your material. However, if fluids are 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, 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.

Please call with any questions.

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