How Do Inspection Requirements Work?

When materials are received from customers, the recycling center attendant must determine if it is eligible for refund value, and if it is, the attendant must also establish how much of the load qualifies for California Refund Value (CRV).

An empty beverage container is eligible for refund value if all of the following requirements are satisfied:

  • The container is made of aluminum, glass, plastic, or bimetal.

  • The container has been opened.

  • Contamination has been removed (the container cannot contain sand, rocks, cigarettes, etc.).

  • The CRV message is on the beverage container.
