State shuts down local recycler’s CRV program
Thursday, April 10 — A Susanville recycling company will be paying $235,000 in restitution and civil penalties to the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) after an investigation revealed the business was allegedly paying California Redemption Value for out-of-state material, accepting more material than the daily legal limit and falsifying records and receipts.
In addition, CRV recycling will no longer be permitted under CalReycle.
Old Tom Glenn, who helps run Bullseye Recycling Center on Highway 395, said, as of May 31, the recycling center will not accept aluminum cans or bottles, but will still operate as a scrap and metal yard accepting copper, brass and car bodies. The scrap program is not run under CalRecycle.
