Why are we not receiving the proceeds from the sale of recyclables?

The commodities market is highly volatile, unpredictable and subject to wide market swings. The cities served by CR&R have arranged for CR&R’s material recovery facility (MRF) to assume that risk by taking all recyclables regardless of the market fluctuations. While the cities do not earn revenue for the recyclables, they also do not pay for landfill disposal of the less desirable materials or pay a processing fee when the sales price of recyclables is less than the cost of processing.
