Resources/Recycling


VALCORE Community Recycling -
Two ways you can help: Donate your recyclables, or Volunteer for one of our Workdays.

Donate your CRV cans/bottles, including your CRV #1 PET and glass bottles, to the Sierra Club. VALCORE also accepts household batteries, cell phone, ink jet cartridges, lap tops and PDAs for recycling. Drop them off the next time you're in town. This is how the Solano Group raises money, so don't forget to come by at least once a year! 

  • Location: 38 Sheridan St., Vallejo

  • Open Monday through Saturday, closed for lunch 1 p.m. - 2. p.m.

  • Donations accepted 9 a.m. 4:30 p.m.; CRV Buy Backs from 10 a.m. 4:30 p.m.
