Curbside Recycling And Curbside Greenery

Q: What if my home/apartment/condo does not have a curbside recycling container?

A: Most residences that have City-collected trash service are eligible for curbside recycling. Call Customer Service at 858-694-7000 to see if you are eligible and to order a container. If your home uses a private company for trash collection you are not eligible for the City's curbside recycling program. In order to provide convenient recycling opportunities for residents without curbside recycling, the City has established the Park and Recreation Recycling Program and maintains a current list of recycling buy-back centers (PDF).

Q: When will I get "yard waste" or "greenery" collection at my house?

A: The expansion of Greenery collection to a citywide service, in neighborhoods where sufficient greenery is generated to economically justify separate collection, is planned to occur over the next four years.

Q: What can I do with my yard waste if I do not have City collection?

A: Take it yourself to Miramar Greenery Recycling at the Miramar Landfill where it will be accepted free of charge if you are a City resident.
