When the big recycling truck rolls into your neighborhood, you know the city of San Diego is working hard to reduce waste at our area landfills. But are you? Zero waste is a big goal for the city. The plan is to reduce waste almost entirely by 2040. To do that, the real work begins inside the home. Are you doing the right thing? Do you know what goes where?
The city of San Diego's recycling program has really grown over the past few years. So what can go into the blue bin? Plastic and glass bottles; metal and aluminum cans — including empty aerosol containers; all kinds of paper — including junk mail, phonebooks, magazines, newspapers, and packaging; things like drink and broth cartons; even rigid plastics and cardboard; and blocks of polystyrene packing material — you may know it better as styrofoam. But styrofoam peanuts do not go in the blue bin. Save and reuse them yourself or take them to a mailing center. Unfortunately, there are still things that must go in the black trash bin, like food-stained materials, dirty plastic bags, glassware, plastic utensils and straws, diapers, and pet poop. Before tossing something in the trash, think about reusing, donating, or recycling it.
Help make San Diego an even better place to live. Recycle today so you and future generations can enjoy a waste-free San Diego.
