The San Lorenzo Valley Redemption & Recycling Centers (SLVRRC) operates three State-certified redemption and recycling centers as a community service. A program of the Valley Women’s Club, SLVRRC works under contract with the County of Santa Cruz to operate recycling centers at the Ben Lomond Transfer Station, as well as smaller centers in Felton and Boulder Creek.
All sites accept CRV (California Refund Value) beverage containers for redemption (a refund of the fee paid when you purchase beverage containers). This includes beverages in aluminum cans, bi-metal (steel) cans, glass bottles, and plastic bottles.
In addition to the beverage containers, all sites accept other aluminum containers, plastic containers #1-#7 (lids removed), and “tin” cans.
Due to the collapsed of the mixed paper market, the SLVRR can no longer accept any kind of paper. Please put paper in your green waste recycling bins instead.
Scrap metals, such as iron and copper, as well as eWaste, are accepted at the Ben Lomond Transfer Station. See at left for additional materials accepted at the Ben Lomond Transfer Station.
For information and current amounts paid, call 335-1728. SLV Redemption & Recycling Centers adhere to the Santa Cruz County Equal Employment Opportunity/NonDiscrimination Policy.
Your donated materials are tax deductible; ask for a receipt.
