Is there an actual milk crate registration system? What is the law by which use by other than the registered owner is punishable?

Is there an index I can use to see who these milk crates are registered to?

Where can I register my milk crates to reserve my rights?

    I don't want to, but I have to... do milk crates have cereal numbers? – dwoz Dec 19 '15 at 22:45
  • And what's the penalty for using an unregistered milk crate in public? – feetwet Dec 19 '15 at 23:34

  • I suspect that the registration is effected by printing an ownership notice on the crate itself. – phoog Dec 20 '15 at 4:51

Here is the state of California code regarding the question. I am sure a state by state inquiry could reveal other statutes.


In California there is no specific registry but registration is performed by marking the container with a registered brand.
