The City of Culver City has selected SoCal Recycling to launch a mobile recycling program at two locations in Culver City. The California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) approved SoCal Recycling to pilot a new way of collecting recyclables for CRV (California Redemption Value). This new program is expected to boost consumer access to recycling and could serve as a new model for more convenient and environmentally responsible redemption statewide.
“The City appreciates our partnership with SoCal Recycling to provide this important service to our residents and neighbors. I’m pleased to report that SoCal Recycling also partnered with Culver City schools to create a recycling drive during April’s Earth Fest Week and continues to support local school initiatives and the community,” said Culver City Mayor Alex Fisch.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, SoCal Recycling’s program has been able to allow local residents to redeem their recycling safely, as an essential service. SoCal Recycling staff provide a socially distanced, COVID-safe experience for local residents to be able to redeem their recycling products. The process is contact-free, and both the staff and recyclers wear face coverings.
In addition to having COVID-19 safety measures in place, the mobile recycling solution reduces or eliminates some of the issues at a fixed-base recycling center or with large collection bins. Additionally, trucks have small footprints and can move to multiple locations within a community, so more people will have convenient access to redemption options.
Please visit a SoCal Recycling truck at one of the following Culver City locations:
10772 Jefferson Boulevard on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Saturdays (behind Ralphs) and
11030 Jefferson Boulevard on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays (behind Party City)
All locations are open from 8 AM – 4:30 PM and are closed from 12:30 PM – 1 PM daily.
Mobile recycling is becoming part of people’s regular routines, which is one of Culver City’s objectives. During the COVID-19 pandemic, SoCal Recycling has found innovative ways to remain a part of the community, and to give back to the local residents through local schools and education. As COVID-19 restrictions continue to ease, SoCal Recycling remains committed to implementing safe procedures.
