Recycling is one of those things that we all know we should do, but many of us don’t want to take the time to do it. If you live in North Clairemont, which is almost entirely located within the 92117 zip code, you have multiple opportunities available to you when it comes to recycling.

Where To Go

One of the easiest ways to start recycling is by beginning to collect items in your home. Many people concentrate on paper, plastic, glass, and aluminum when they collect household recycling. If you are interested in that kind of recycling, you can arrange drop-offs at the North Clairemont Recreation Center or the Cadman Recreation Center. Those two locations accept the typical household recyclables. You may even be able to get a refund for your bottles or cans, so make sure you ask.
