Consumers pay California Redemption Value (CRV) when they purchase beverages from a retailer, and receive CRV refunds when they redeem the containers at a recycling center. So every time your finish with your drink you can take your empty container to a recycling center and cash in. Most beverages packaged in aluminum, glass, plastic and bi-metal containers are eligible for CRV. Notable exceptions are milk, wine and distilled spirits, which are not included in the CRV program. CRV is 5 cents for each beverage container less than 24 ounces and 10 cents for each container 24 ounces or greater. Thanks to the CRV cash incentive, more than 300 billion aluminum, glass, and plastic beverage containers have been recycled since the program began in 1987.

Step One: Collection

Scrap metal is collected from the households as well as from the different industries. It is then sent to the sorting agents.




Step Two: Sorting

The metals are sorted based on their type and composition. Like metals are packed together and sent to the scrap metal recycling centers.




Step Three: Inspection

The metals are inspected to see if they are sorted correctly and if the like ones are kept together. Later they are melted.




Step Four: Melting

The metals are, later, heated in smelters. Smelters are devices which melt big chunks of metals at very high temperatures. Each metal or similar metals have different smelters because of their different melting points.




Step Five: Cooling

This is the last step in scrap metal recycling. Once the metals melt fully, they are molded into small bars and are allowed to cool down before they are reused. These small bars are called as ingots.
