As part of nationwide closures of 284 centers, rePlanet's recycling buy back center on Jackson Street is now closed.
But don’t give up hope that what you are recycling in the Napa Valley is actually being recycled – because it is!
You still have two local options to get your CRV back and a third option to ensure it is recycled.
Blue Front Recycling
2877 Solano Avenue
Mon-Sat: 9 AM – 4:30 PM with a half-hour lunch around noon
Devlin Road Reuse & Recycle Center
889B Devlin Road, American Canyon
M-Sat: 8:30 am- 3:30 pm
Both centers are State-Certified CRV (California Redemption Value) buy back centers that are open and running, ready to pay you back for your recyclables.
If CRV isn’t important to you, putting them into your blue curbside recycling cart will ensure they will be recycled – they head to the City-owned Recycling and Composting facility down the road in American Canyon and are sorted out and bailed to be recycled. 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 you put them into your landfill container they will NOT be recycled.
With the constant bad news about recycling from China not accepting materials to the pollution in our waterways, remember that bottles and cans are some of the BEST and EASIEST materials to recycle. Recycled aluminum cans can be back on the shelf in as little as 60 days and recycling ONE can saves enough energy to run a computer for 3 hours. When you consider plastic bottles, it can be recycled into a myriad of things – clothes, new plastic bottles, carpets, and more.
So don’t despair, continue to recycle! Not sure what can or can’t be recycled in Napa’s curbside program? Please visit www.napareycling.com for a full list of what is accepted and not accepted in your blue bin.
