Beverage Container Recycling: It's in Your Hands

Recycling Starter Kit

We're happy to announce that the award-winning Recycling Starter Kit (RSK) is once again available to help your business, office, school or other away-from-home location reduce its "waste" size--and maybe even save some money. The sleek black bin is the perfect place for staff and visitors to put their empty California Refund Value (CRV) beverage containers. What you do with them after that is up to you! Want cash for the office coffee supply? Take the bottles and cans to a recycling center and collect the CRV. Want to support a local scout troop or other organization? Donate the containers to them so they can get the refund. Need other information or ideas? Contact the Recycling Starter Kit Program.

We look forward to helping Californians recycle their bottles and cans where they live, work and play. Recycling--it's a simple way to save energy and natural resources, and helps reduce California's carbon footprint.
