Stockton Junk Recycling Tips

So what’s your favorite soda? By the size of the soda industry and the amount of variety to choose from it clear carbonated beverages are very popular. Because so much soda is consumed every day there’s a lot of aluminum cans and plastic bottles that have to be taken care of. Many states like California have turned to comprehensive recycling programs to not only help clean up the clutter of tossed out cans but also provide a viable source of income for many folks. Not to mention the fact that for every recycled can we lessen our impact natural resource usage and can cut back on greenhouse gases.
In Stockton, as with everywhere else in the state, consumers are allowed recycle cans for money under the California Refund Value (CRV) program. Each can under 24 ounces can bring you five cents while a container 24 ounces or more is worth ten cents. That can add up pretty quickly. Where is all this money coming from to pay for these bottles and cans? Actually you pay for it every time you buy a soda. Look at your receipt and you’ll see a CRV charge added to purchase so it is basically a net neutral program.
Throughout the state there are over 2,000 certified recycling centers where you can drop off at can or two or 100 and receive a receipt that you can cash in for money. There are some community organizations that use recycling programs to supplement the funding for their activities. Most Stockton residents simply toss out their aluminum cans in the weekly curbside recycling bin. Anyone of these options is great as long as recycling is going on.
Although aluminum soda cans make up the bulk of California’s recycling program there’s a lot more that can be recycled if you think about.
