This is the debut of the first “Shameless Plug” blog posting on Recycle San Diego’s website, and hopefully it won’t be the last. We’ll do this occasionally when we’re feeling particularly proud about something we’ve done to advance our mission and/or community outreach. This is just such an occasion.
I’m happy and gratified to report that Recycle San Diego is partnering with Ballpark Self Storage to kick-off an eWaste drop-off program at the storage facility’s location at 611 Island Ave, San Diego, CA 92101.
Free eWaste drop-off is open to the general public and Ballpark Self Storage will receive eWaste 7 days a week from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, with the exception of major national holidays. eWaste items that are accepted include computers, monitors, televisions, small printers, laptop computers, cell phones, stereo systems, rechargeable batteries, and much more. For more information please call (866)-711-6408.
Jeffrey Harding (our founder and the reigning president of Recycle San Diego), asserted to all who would listen that “This partnership between our two organizations provides residents of downtown San Diego, the Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, the Marina District, East Village, and Cortez Hill with an easy and practical solution to the problem of limited access to eWaste recycling facilities. Downtown and neighboring residents can now drop off their eWaste seven days a week at Ballpark Self Storage.”
This partnership is noteworthy because our company’s goal is to scale-up this concept and ultimately create easily accessible eWaste drop-off centers throughout San Diego County. During the past 7 years we have serviced more than 50,000 households and diverted more than 85 tons of eWaste from being dumped into our local landfills. We’ll divert even more once we get more storage units online with our program.
A shameless plug about our partnership would be incomplete if we didn’t also shamelessly mention our new partner Ballpark Self Storage.
