Recycling Program at nine County Parks


You may notice some new containers in ten County Parks.  In 2001, the California Department of Conservation has awarded the County a grant to place new recycling containers in these Parks.  These containers will be conveniently located adjacent to most of the existing garbage cans.  Using the new park recycling containers, you can recycle any beverage container with the California Redemption Value label, including the following items:



These recycling containers are made with recycled plastic lumber.  Recycled plastic lumber is made from plastic grocery bags and bottles.  Every time you recycle and buy recycled products, you are helping the environment.


Be on the look out for the new Recycling Containers at these parks:
