Does anyone else live in a state that has bottle redemption? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
I am in California and we pay a CRV on each case/6-pack/12-pack/2-liter that we buy.

We bring our bottles/cans to a Recycling Center and we are reimbursed by WEIGHT and not per item.

I can't be positive, but I really believe that we do not get all of our CRV back when we return the cans/bottles. Each redemption center varies as to the rate they pay per pound. The one near the city dump pays the highest and another one closest to us will give you more per pound if you put their bumper sticker on your vehicle.

I would love to have a machine in our stores that gives us credit like your Walmart does! It would make it easier to take back a few at a time.

Missystuy...I was only able to see them once when I was younger...at the MN State Fair. I think they had Tiffany and Tommy Page open for them!! My friend and I made a sign and I still have it....I used an old bed sheet! It's just too much fun to be able to go back in a way and do something like this. When they were on the Today Show I was a screamin' and my kids were like what the???? Right after they were done singing the medley of old songs my Mom called me. I just picked up the phone and screamed into it!! She was laughing hysterically! So cool to be able to feel that again!!

We do! I love it! I returned two bags today and took myself out to eat for lunch before work.
