To: All Certified Processors and Other Interested Parties

SUBJECT: Statewide Average Monthly Scrap Value Notice Through March 2024

Posted: (June 6, 2024)

California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 14, Section 2985 (b), requires the Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (Department) to provide written notification of the monthly statewide weighted average scrap values per beverage container material types reported to the Department by certified processors. The March 2024 Monthly Scrap Value notification is available on the Department’s website:

The statewide weighted average scrap values for each beverage container material type (Bimetal, Glass, and #1 through 7 Plastics) are based on the monthly scrap value purchases reported by certified processors. These data are initial estimates and are subject to future adjustments that will be reflected in subsequent notices. Year-to-date totals for glass are reported at the request of the glass industry.
