California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 14, Section 2985 (b), requires the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery to provide written notification of the monthly statewide weighted average scrap values for beverage container material types reported to the department by participating certified processors. In order to keep all participants informed, the department has also chosen to post this notice.

The statewide weighted average scrap values for each beverage container material type; Bimetal, Glass, and #1-7 Plastic are the monthly scrap value purchases reported by participating certified processors. Year-to-date totals for glass are reported at the request of the glass industry. These totals for glass are provided to enable the industry to see how the value of glass develops from October 2022 through September 2023.

These data are initial estimates and are subject to future adjustments that will be reflected in subsequent notices. If you have any questions regarding this notice, please contact Brenda Meden at (916) 341-6091 or Brenda.Meden@CalRecycle.ca.gov.
