For over 7 years, Recycle San Diego has been serving over 50,000 businesses and households with electronics, light bulb, and battery recycling services.  If you are in need of a quick solution to recycle and avoid paying hefty environmental fines then we are here to provide that.  In addition to compliance, we can host corporate recycling events to inform your staff of your environmental commitment.


Your household or company has universal waste electronics, batteries, or light bulbs that require recycling.  We provide the solution by being available via phone, email, or in person whenever needed.  We work with you to provide a robust universal waste disposal plan which not only keeps you in compliance with mandatory recycling laws, but also sets the tone for your company values.




Recycle San Diego has invested tremendously in technology, equipment, and personnel to track the journey of your assets throughout the entire recycling process.  We’ve built a secure facility which is separate from our main facility to handle all destruction needs.   Our facilities and equipment are regularly inspected to ensure compliance with our security standards.  Our employees are all thoroughly background checked, continuously trained, measured, monitored and evaluated.  We have the latest in video surveillance technology, including remote access, keyless/auto-locking doors, etc.


Recycle San Diego will keep your company EPA (and/or DTSC) compliant by providing proof that your universal waste was disposed of properly. By using RSD’s services, you will be protecting yourself from violating any disposal laws, and potentially getting fines of up to $20,000 per item. See the process overview below.


Recycle San Diego starts by collecting e-waste from the San Diego community.
Next, we sort the e-waste by type, and resell any parts that can be reused.
Finally, RSD recycles the rest with downstream processors who have obtained the following certifications:



Since Recycle San Diego operates as a collector, not a processor, these certificates are not required of us. However, Recycle San Diego does hold our downstream processors accountable for keeping these certifications up-to-date. The State of California does have a program where recyclers can be reimbursed for the cost of recycling CRT (“cathode ray tube”), LCD, and Plasma devices.

The RSD Guarantee: RSD will provide you with the most current, technology-driven e-scrap processing at the lowest possible cost.
