CRV Plastics

CalRecycle’s website notifies Californians of local retailers who are obligated to offer CRV redemption in-store when there is no buyback center nearby.

Beverage dealers, retailers that sell CRV beverages, share an obligation to ensure convenient redemption opportunities for consumers.  If a beverage dealer is located in an “unserved Convenience zone” and there is no recycling center nearby, these retailers are required to either redeem CRV material in-store (Option A), or opt to pay a fee of $100 per day (Option B).

The most efficient and effective way to lodge a complaint against a recycling center or an Option A retailer and initiate a CalRecycle inspection of that entity is by emailing your name, phone number, a brief summary of the issue, and the name and address of the subject of your complaint to: complaints@calrecycle.ca.gov.


California Drug Take-Back Program

The California Drug Take-Back Program has enough remaining funding to provide you with free liners (including shipping and disposal of filled liners) through early 2022. We encourage you to continue accepting unwanted medications in the med bins we’ve installed at your facility, shipping them back once they are no more than 2/3 full, and ordering replacement liners as you’ve previously done (using the process documentation provided to you upon installation of the med bin). SB 212 is expected to be fully operational, barring no delays, in 2022. ​
