Kearny Mesa Recycling is a Major Activity

If you look at the 92111 area code area of San Diego (which is the Kearny Mesa neighborhood) you would think that it is the recycling capital of the area. This is because it is literally packed with Kearny Mesa recycling facilities of all kinds. There is the Recycle San Diego facility at 8222 Ronson Rd, the San Diego Recycling Works at 9601 Ridgehaven Court, and the Miramar Recycling Center on 5165 Convoy Street.

Details about Kearny Mesa Recycling

If you read through the extraordinarily useful “City of San Diego Residential Recycling Guide” you would see that they list the Miramar Recycling Center as their location of choice. This is because it really is totally comprehensive in terms of what it will take, buy back, or accept for a fee.

What to Bring to Kearny Mesa Recycling Centers

What does that mean? Well, at the Miramar location you can bring metal of all kinds, glass, plastic, cardboard, newspaper, mixed paper, appliances and even electronics. There are really no general facilities in the area for things like hazardous waste, though the city has a HHW facility available for antifreeze, automotive batteries, consumer batteries, light bulbs, mercury thermometers, paint products, pesticides and more. This is available by appointment when you call 858-694-7000.

For those who live or work within the Kearny Mesa district, it is remarkably simple to do your part to save the planet. Whether you want someone to buy back your CRV cans or to simply take that old refrigerator off of your hands, you will find the resources and facilities that will do, and all in a very earth friendly and responsible manner. You can even stop by the Miramar Greenery and grab some compost or mulch while you are in this same neighborhood as well!
