Recycling Fun Facts
- In California, about 24.5 billion California Refund Value (CRV) eligible containers were sold in 2018. Of those, more than 18.5 billion were recycled!
- Since 6 billion bottles and cans ended up in the landfill, nobody claimed the CRV on them. How much CRV? More than $100 million worth!
- For every 10 pounds of aluminum you recycle, you eliminate 37 pounds of carbon emissions from the air.
- Glass bottles spend 1 million years waiting around to decompose.
- For every 10 pounds of clear plastic water or soda bottles, 3.3 pounds of carbon emissions disappear.
- And although glass bottles are a lot heavier, each 10 pounds recycled still reduces carbon by nearly a pound.
In a landfill, aluminum cans take 80-100 years to break down.
- Plastic bottles hang around as long as 700 years.
Always an amazing experience and a great time....I will always continue coming here for my recycling
First time there and was very impressed with the friendly staff and how efficient the facility was run.
Thankyou for your courtesy and kindness. You are a professional team and I will always recommend your yard to anybody I know or come to know...r ight spot right now.
The best recycling place I've ever been to. Went in for crv, and honestly yhey will give you the best value. The other places in this area WILL rip you off. The guys here are all cool too, great customer service. Don't even bother with anywhere else. This is the best one by far.
Great customer service. They have a great system to ensure the best way to effectively and quickly serve their customers!!!
Hello everyone first off Jesus loves u all and Jesus is coming back sooon ok now this is a great place to get rid of your cans bottles etc and. A very friendly staff i have a great time when i come here and they can help you with any questions about cans and stuff you can recycling
First time here and as busy as it was, fairly good organization. Was surprised that 17.7 lbs of miscellaneous plastic was not reimbursed! Other recycle centers reimburse. Had I known the miscellaneous had to be segregated, they wouldn’t have received it for free along with the income from it. I’m sure I am not the only customer‘donating income!
Cap City recycling center is the best place! They are a really hardworking team of professionals over! Love that they always have some great tunes playing too! Sincerely LaChester Green, aka bumping beats:-) today I stopped by my favorite recycling center and they were closed due to COVID-19 surging. But I was still able to speak with a couple of the great people who work there, this is just the Best of the best in this industry hands down! Can't wait till they are back to business as usual!
There are 2 closer recycling centers near me but I go to this one because they pay the best and have the most friendly staff. I once lost my keys there and they did everything in their power to find them. Great people, great center, great vibes.
I have not seen a recycling place so organized, helpful and professional.
