Capital City Recycling Difference
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.
