Recycling Center

Buy Back Center

In partnership with Waste Management, the Orange County Conservation Corps operates a “buy-back” Recycling Center in Irvine where the general public can redeem their bottles and cans for cold, hard cash! As a non-profit organization, we use the Recycling Center proceeds to enhance and support programs for Orange County communities and programs that support underserved and disadvantaged young adults. We buy back only “CRV” containers.
