Recommended Additions[edit]

I know little about CRV, so I came here to learn. Allow me to suggest the following additions:

What is the difference b/w the refund value and the redemption value? Why are the redemption centers filthy? Why do they routinely open late and close early? Why do they have "caps" on the number of "customers" they service daily? How much revenue does the state collect annually in unclaimed refunds? How much in the tax portion of CRV? Does the beverage container need to say "CA CRV" in order to receive a refund? Comparison to other states' or other countries' deposit programs would be helpful. I am most familiar with Germany's; in comparison, California's is a mess. --72.47.85.102 (talk) 07:08, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

If according to CA law the CRV is part of the basic price of the product and not a separate fee, is it actually legal that stores advertise all beverage sales with prices not including the CRV but in addition to the product price? It comes out that consumers are taxed on the CRV amount because the CRV is part of the product price, but then they also pay the CRV amount on top of any advertised or shelf price of the products, as if the CRV were NOT already part of the price. These can't both be true at once. Anyone care to weigh in on this topic to explain it? Anna8800 (talk) 07:56, 18 August 2013 (UTC)



Wine bottles[edit]

I just recycled 10 empty bottles of wine and got $1. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 148.87.19.202 (talk) 23:43, 9 April 2012 (UTC)

MCR> That is interesting. Perhaps they were what California recycling centers call "co-mingled" The actual law otherwise does exclude wine bottles. I've been trying for a long time to find out why? All inquires just point to the CRV legislation...but that does NOT explain the logic behind excluding wine bottles. There is a lot more glass in a wine bottle. I did a tiny unscientific experiment and found about twice as much glass weight at least (often more) in a wine bottle than a beer bottle. What reasoning excludes wine bottles from CRV.
