Information about La Jolla Village Recycling

If you grab a copy of the City of San Diego Residential Recycling Guide you would see that the city identifies one very specific provider of convenient recycling services. That is the Nexcycle facility located at 7554 Girard Ave. This is still within the 91942 zip code, which is just outside of the village proper, but it is the one location where residents are told to go if they want a “one stop” solution  for recycling.

For instance, those involved in La Jolla Village recycling at the Nexcycle location can easily get rid of metal cans, plastic, and glass recyclables. They can also do so through a buy back program, which means they get a bit of cash for doing a bit to save the planet.

Outside of Standard Materials

At this La Jolla Village location you cannot bring metal of all kinds, glass, plastic, cardboard, newspaper, mixed paper, appliances or electronics. These are things for the specialty vendors, which can be found by heading just outside the area. For instance, you can use the All Green Electronics Recycling at 4504 Clairemont Mesa Blvd., or the Goodwill Mira Mesa center at Mira Sorrento Way at Vista Sorrento Pkwy too. There are no general facilities for hazardous waste, though the city has a HHW facility available by appointment when you call 858-694-7000.
