To assist facilities that are not serviced by the City of San Diego in choosing a recycling service provider, the City has developed a certification process for private recycling collectors. Certification is voluntary. Certified recyclers will be listed on the City's website and in outreach materials related to the ordinance.
Certification is valid for up to two years. To become certified, recyclers must complete an application, pay a $130 application fee, provide proof of insurance and agree to comply with the requirements in section 66.0714 of the Municipal Code.
If you would like to apply for certification, fill out the application and submit the required documentation along with the $130 processing fee. Please make check or money order payable to "City Treasurer" and mail to:
Environmental Services Department
Attn: CRMC Application
9601 Rideghaven Ct., Suite 320
San Diego, CA 92123-1636
Please review the Certified Recyclable Materials Collector application for more information.
