As many of you know we have been a long standing fight (10yrs) to remain open and to provide recycling services to our community. These efforts have been costly to date.
The City of Chico has chosen to no longer make an effort to settle this dispute/ help us remain open/ help us relocate, and instead continue onto a lawsuit.
Chico Scrap Metal must re-structure and financially prepare for this very costly task and therefore stop business practices that are more service driven than profit making (the volatility of this material swings up and down, at times no profit to be made that covers wages, etc.)
Contact CalRecycle website at CALRECYCLE.CA.GOV to find out the nearest location for recycling CRV material (we believe Oroville is the closest location). We hope that at some point we will be able to accept CRV material again, but most likely only if the state intervenes.
We may be able to take other types of containers and card board as a donation only.
