California has recycled more than 463 BILLION bottles and cans since 1986 and the number just keeps growing.

Bottles and cans can go in your curbside recycling cart, or if you’d like to find a recycling center that will buy back empty California Refund Value (CRV) beverage containers, visit CalRecycle’s website:

If you’re in the Victor Valley area, you can take CRV items to the Victor Valley MRF Buy-back Center which is open Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 17000 Abbey Lane, Victorville. For more information, call the Victor Valley MRF at (760) 241-1284.
