Donor Spotlight:
Universal Waste Disposal Company

With Global Recycling Day coming up on March 18th, for this month’s donor spotlight we wanted to feature our friends over at Universal Waste Disposal Company (UWDC)! As a leader in lamp, battery, and electronics recycling in California, UWDC is dedicated to the environmentally safe, socially responsible, and compliant handling of potentially hazardous waste. Through proper recycling, UWDC helps keep potentially hazardous materials from being disposed of incorrectly and harming San Diego’s local environment.

UWDC understands that one of the biggest barriers to recycling is education. Without knowledge of what should be recycled, hazardous items can often times end up in landfills or illegally dumped in canyons. To combat this, UWDC teamed up with ILACSD for a series of blogs to make information available about some tricky items to recycle! Keep an eye out for the next blog focusing on proper handling and recycling of lithium-ion batteries!

Help keep San Diego Clean

I Love A Clean San Diego empowers San Diegans to improve the health and beauty of our local environment through community programs, education, and a recycling database. Make a donation today to create positive change in our community.
