IMPORTANT INFORMATION: In response to the directives from Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer and Governor Gavin Newsom, the Centers for Disease Control and local health authorities, to adapt operations and continue to provide essential service while safely doing so for our employees and customers, the Recycling Center is limiting the number of customers allowed into the Center at the same time to allow for social distancing.
The Miramar Recycling Center serves as a drop-off center for many recyclable materials. This includes large or bulky items that can be recycled but cannot go in either the black trash bin or the blue recycling bin.
Operated by Allan Co. Recycling, the center accepts four classes of recyclables:
The Miramar Recycling Center pays a California Redemption Value (CRV) refund for all aluminum, plastic, glass and steel beverage containers for which a CRV deposit was charged. Scrap value is paid for some types of metals, newspaper and cardboard (call for pricing).
Some recyclables that do not have refund or scrap value are accepted for donation (no payment or fee charged to the customer). "Donation only" items include:
$6.00 each; and
$0.25 per pound
For additional information on recycling other scrap metal such as brass, copper and aluminum, or to verify pricing and accepted items, call the Miramar Recycling Center at 858-268-8971.
