ILACSD Profiles Old Town Recycling Center

ILACSD’s One-Stop Recycling Resource, www.wastefreesd.org, connects San Diegan with numerous recycling centers around San Diego County. One of those centers, Old Town Recycling, has been around since 1989 and has diverted millions of pounds of waste that would otherwise end up in our landfills. ILACSD staff members stopped by Old Town Recycling on a busy Friday afternoon and spoke with people recycling, bottles, cans, boxes and much more.

“We bring the recycling here for our entire apartment complex,” said David, a San Diego resident. David’s apartment building does not offer a recycling option so he decided to take matters into his own hands.

Rodrigo supervises Old Town Recycling and says they get around 300 people a day. “We get a lot of glass, plastic and aluminum cans,” said Rodrigo. He says unusual items he sees is being recycled at his facility are auto parts.

Just a small fraction of what Old Town Recycling processes every day!

“Recycling is just the right thing to do,” said San Diego local, Justin. “We only have a finite number of resources on our planet.”

You can visit Old Town Recycling seven days a week from 7am – 6pm. They are located at 2161 Hancock Street, San Diego 92110. They accept a wide range of items, so log on to www.wastefreesd.org to learn more about what they accept as well as other nearby recycling centers.
