America Recycles Day at South Coast AQMD

On November 16, 2019 South Coast AQMD sponsored the City of Diamond Bar’s America Recycles Day event. The event offered the public a convenient, eco-friendly way to dispose of documents, electronics and textiles, while providing attendees the opportunity to explore green exhibits including giveaways, information on special programs and free water efficiency kits for SoCal Gas customers.

Many attendees arrived with shovels and containers to take advantage of the free mulch. They were able to take up to 80 gallons home for their gardens. There was an overwhelming response to the recycling of electronics, as three truckloads of everyday items such as televisions, computers and kitchen appliances were hauled away.

Children took part in environmentally-themed arts and crafts and interacted with the EnviroScape model which demonstrates how ocean pollution occurs. Exhibitors included:

  • Cal Micro Recycling

  • John L. Hunter & Associates

  • San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments

  • So Cal Shredding

  • Southern California Edison

  • Walnut Valley Water District

  • Waste Management

  • USA Again

A special thank you to the City of Diamond Bar, the exhibitors and all attendees who came out to the event.
