Recycling Containers on Main Beach
9/19/2014  State CalRecycle grant funds will be used to increase recycling along the Main Beach Boardwalk area. The City will purchase 15 recycling containers, at a cost of approximately $9,000, which will be the same concrete aggregate design as the existing containers used throughout the downtown area. The containers have been ordered and are expected to be delivered by the middle of November. For the time being, five temporary plastic recycling containers have been placed in the area. The containers will be monitored to measure how much uncontaminated recycling content is recovered. If this pilot program proves to be successful, then additional containers can be placed in other public places using the same CalRecycle grant funds. Currently, all waste and bulky items collected from the beaches, parks and streets are sorted and processed at Waste Management’s Sunset Environmental Facility in Irvine in an effort to maximize the amount of waste that is diverted from the landfills and recycled.
