‘Del Mar Recycles’ drop-off event is July 19


Coast Waste Management and the city of Del Mar are hosting the second “Del Mar Recycles” drop-off event for city residents and businesses from 9 a.m.-noon July 19. The drop-off event makes it easy to recycle and dispose of common household items in an environmentally safe manner.

The event will offer on-site document shredding and the safe collection of non-controlled medications, sharps (needles), compact fluorescent bulbs (CFLs), and household batteries. Please note: Sharps and non-controlled medication drop-off is limited to residents only.

Bring items to the city hall upper parking lot, 1050 Camino Del Mar, in Del Mar. Limits for shredding are three standard office storage boxes per per person or business and 12 bulbs or tubes.

By properly disposing of items, residents and businesses can help protect the environment by keeping those items away from the landfill and water streams.
