Miramar Landfill Offers Recycling and Trash Disposal

The Miramar Landfill located at 5180 Convoy Street in San Diego, California offers convenient trash disposal and recycling. As San Diego’s only active landfill, the Miramar Landfill disposes an average of 910,000 tons of waste each year. To ensure the safety of the environment, the landfill conforms to environmental regulatory requirements, revegetates closed areas of the landfill with native plants, and uses the methane, which is a byproduct of the landfill, to provide electricity to the North City Water Reclamation Plant and the Metropolitan Biosolids Center.
