REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

The Department of Recycling (DOR), a branch of CSET's Sequoia Community Corps (SCC), provides environmentally safe and convenient Beverage Container (CRV), Used Oil and Electronic Waste recycling services to the families, communities and businesses of Tulare and Kings Counties. Corpsmembers service all containers and operate multiple buyback centers. Call us to place no-cost CRV recycling containers at your next special event! 

In addition to the various drop-off locations provided by the DOR, corpsmembers are also available to provide Recycling Education at your next class presentation or community event.

TYPES OF RECYCLING

ELECTRONIC WASTE (E-WASTE)
E-waste is a popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their useful life. Cell phones, computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, copiers, and fax machines are common electronic products that the DOR is capable of recycling. CSET offers no-cost collection services as many of these products can be refurbished and reused. CSET's E-Recycling Solutions is an approved Universal Waste Electronic Devices (UWED) and Consumer Electronic Device (CED) Collector for California (ID#102584).

E-Recycling Solutions services the following industries: 

  • State & Local Government 
  • Businesses & Non-Profits
  • Education & Healthcare
  • Community Residents
  • Financial Institutions

For more information on e-waste or to schedule a pick-up, please contact James Salazar at (559) 667-3115. Don't forget to ask about our special event collections!

 

BEVERAGE CONTAINER (CRV)
Beverage Container recycling, also known as CRV, is the most common and widely known form of recycling. That being said, approximately 2/3 of all beverage containers in the United States never get recycled! To help reduce that number, the DOR provides four conveniently located recycling centers throughout the county. 

Did you know?

  • CRV stands for California Redemption Value and identifies the amount consumers pay when they purchase beverages from a retailer, and receive when they redeem the containers at a recycling center.
  • Californians bought more than 23 billion carbonated and non-carbonated CRV-eligible drinks in aluminum, glass, plastic, and bi-metal containers in 2015. More than 18.6 billion of those containers were recycled, saving natural resources, conserving energy, extending the life of our landfills, and helping to reduce emissions of harmful greenhouse gases.

For more information on CRV recycling, please contact Anthony DeLeon at (559) 736-2036.
