Recycle Plastics, Paper, Tires and More...Resource List
Sources for Recycling Used Materials and ProductsFinding a home for used materials can be a challenge. We found more than 300 companies in Los Angeles County that accept a widely varying, yet by company -- very specific -- set of materials. Another consideration is what these companies DO with the material they collect. Some ship them to China or other distant lands where the recycling laws are not very environmentally -- or people-friendly. If this concerns you, always ask the recycling company what they use the material for, where it goes when it leaves their facility.

Sanitation Districts of Los Angeles CountyAccess to disposal sites has become specialized. A search engine (Google or Yahoo) search for your County or City "sanitation district" can help you find locations, fees, recycling information etc. specific to your closest facilities. And closer is always better! :-)
