Protect California CRV

Take Action

Distribute Flyers

You can help spread the word and grow California CRV Recyclers by downloading and distributing flyers to recycling customers at your recycling center. Or if you are a consumer, hand out flyers to your friends and family who recycle and encourage them to get involved. Download our flyer here.  You can also download our Spanish version here.

Tell Your Story

Are you a recycler worried about how you will keep your doors open? Or do you recycle your bottles and cans at your neighborhood recycling center and want to continue to do so? We’re looking for your stories to help educate legislators about why it is important to protect California’s CRV recycling infrastructure. If you are willing to share your story on our site, email us at info@protectcrv.com and we will contact you.

Reach out to your Assembly Member or State Senator

Help us spread the word. Contact the legislators in your district. Let them know without increased state funding and Legislative support that makes it harder for other entities to arbitrarily shut sites down, MORE RECYCLING CENTERS WILL CLOSE.
