Participate in Ocean Beach Recycling

Our planet is in trouble, and if you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, you know that it is just getting worse. People who want to pollute and waste are everywhere, and those responsible few must work extra hard to try to undo the damage already done. One of the best ways you can start to get involved in the green movement is through recycling. In Ocean Beach, located within the 92107 zip code, you have several opportunities to join the green revolution that is sweeping California. You can become a leader in your neighborhood by organizing neighborhood recycling programs, or just start by collecting your own household recyclable items.

In Your Backyard

When you are looking for places to take your household recyclables, you don’t have to look further than your own neighborhood. You can take your shredded paper, cardboard, glass, aluminum, and plastic to the Ocean Beach Recreation Center. There are outside drop-off bins that are available for community use, but please don’t drop off items at night. With such a convenient option available, why wouldn’t you recycle?

Other Options

Of course, there are times when you need more than just the typical recycling center. In that instance, you may be wondering what kinds of resources are available in San Diego to help you recycle responsibly. You can use the searchable database at to find recycling centers near you. Search by the type of item you want to recycle or by location.
