County hosts annual public recycling event

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The County of San Diego is celebrating Earth Day.

On Tuesday it hosted its annual recycling event at the County Operations Center in Kearny Mesa.

Employees and members of the public were urged to drop off used batteries and compact fluorescent light bulbs for recycling, as well as learn about ways to make the county a more sustainable place.

"It's the 5 R's – to refuse to buy products that are poorly packaged, to reuse, to recycle, to renew and certainly to recover," County Supervisor Greg Cox said.

Goodwill was also on hand collecting clothing donations.
