The city’s recycling center at 5165 Convoy Street, off Highway 52, is offering San Diegans a place where they can recycle their outdated tax files for free. The event, sponsored by the City of San Diego and Allan Co., runs April 13 to 22.
Allan Co. will provide secure containers at the Miramar Recycling Center for residents to drop off old files, which are securely stored and shredded before being recycled.
“Recyclable paper continues to be a large percentage of all waste buried in the Miramar Landfill,” said Chris Gonaver, director of the Environmental Services Department. “The City now accepts bagged, shredded paper through our curbside recycling program. For those residents without curbside collection or home paper shredders, this confidential recycling service ensures that all San Diego residents have a safe alternative for recycling their tax files.”
Tax file recycling is available to San Diego residents only and is limited to the equivalent of one “Banker’s Box” of 10 inches high, 15 inches wide, 25 inches deep, per customer.
For more information about recycling tax files, please call the Environmental Services Department at (858) 694-7000.
