Got Junk? owner Bill Cox helps out at last year

portunity to participate in several different recycling events on September 15, the day scheduled by I Love a Clean San Diego, the California Coastkeeper and Keep Fallbrook Clean and Green for a community-wide, county-wide and state-wide Clean Up and Recycling Day. Participants will have an opportunity to recycle their e-waste, shred their old paperwork, dispose of used household batteries and/or volunteer to help clean up local streets and roadways. All the recycling activities will take place in the large downtown parking lot behind the Art and Cultural Center at Main Avenue and Alvarado Street.

Residents will be able to dispose of their old computers and other electronic equipment on September 15 from 9 a.m. to noon. The free e-waste event is being handled by 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, an Oceanside franchise owned by Bill Cox, a longtime supporter of Fallbrook community clean-up events. Only the following electronic equipment is eligible for disposal at this event: computer monitors, TVs, computers, printers and cell phones. No universal waste will be accepted and no business e-waste will be processed.

Individuals should bring their e-waste to the Art Center parking lot, entering from Fig Street. Senior Sheriff’s Department volunteers will be on the street to direct drivers to the e-waste entrance, where they will be asked to complete a form listing their address and ZIP code, a state requirement for disposing of electronic equipment. Community volunteers will be on hand to assist residents with the paperwork.

Residents may also take advantage of a free paper shredding event a short distance away at the northwest corner of the parking lot. The paper-shredding is sponsored by Shred-It of Vista as a service to the Fallbrook community. Sheriff’s volunteers will also direct residents to this location.

Plans are also in the works for a tire amnesty, sponsored by the County of San Diego, on the same day. Details will be publicized as plans are finalized.

These recycling events are being held in conjunction with the Community-Wide Clean-Up sponsored by I Love a Clean San Diego and Keep Fallbrook Clean and Green. Volunteers participating in the Clean-Up should sign in beginning at 8 a.m. directly behind the Art Center.

All recycling events are limited to individuals and are free to North County residents; no materials will be accepted from businesses. Businesses may call 1-800-GOT-JUNK? or visit http://www.1800gotjunk.com to book an appointment.

Additional details on paper-shredding and the tire amnesty will be distributed soon.
