Recycle and Get Cash Back for CRV Bottles and Cans Open: 9am-4pm,
tues.-fri. & 9am-3pm, sat.

The CRV redemption center is located behind the Last Chance Mercantile and pays cash for beverage containers labeled “CRV Refund Value”. These include beverage containers for drinks such as soda, beer, water, etc. Please remove caps from containers before arriving at the redemption center to minimize containers contacting residual liquid. Prices are subject to change. For details about pricing and accepted containers see the District’s Buy Back Center Hours and Pricing Flyer.

Having a Special Event?

MRWMD will provide community organizations and schools holding special events with collection containers for bottle and can recycling. (Based upon availability.) After the event, upon return of the containers to the District, you can drop off your collected CRV bottles and cans for redemption at the Buy Back Center. A great way to help make your event a bit greener and raise some “green” at the same time for your organizations.
