Yes, unfortunately the buyback center on Jackson street closed over the weekend due to its parent company, RePlanet, closing all 284 locations across the State. RePlanet closed due to dropping market prices for metal and plastics and increasing operating costs.
There are still two local locations that you can get paid for your California Redemption Value (CRV) bottles and cans:
1. Blue Front Recycling (2877 Solano Ave, Napa, Mon-Sat: 9 AM – 4:30 PM with a half hour lunch around noon, p. 916-519-2040); and
2. Devlin Road Reuse & Recycle Center (889B Devlin Road, American Canyon, Mon-Sat: 8:30 am- 3:30 pm, p. 707-258-9005).
Yes! Your bottles and cans will continued to be recycled if put into the blue recycling curbside cart. They are taken to the City of Napa’s Recycling and Composting Facility where they are sorted out, bailed and then sent off to be recycled into new products. Napa Recycling’s curbside program also accepts non-CRV containers like glass wine bottles and other empty plastic bottles (like condiments or shampoo bottles). Note: if they are in your landfill cart, they will not be recycled.
Recycling is always a better option than landfilling it (as long as it is recyclable – when in doubt, find out!). Bottles and cans are some of the easier and better materials to recycle with a huge energy, natural resources, and cost savings. Recycling one aluminum saves enough energy to power a computer for three hours, while plastic bottles can be recycled into clothes, insulation, and more!
