Properly Dispose of Your Household Hazardous Waste

Did you know that common items like batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, and paint are considered household hazardous waste?

Spring is here! This is the perfect time to do some cleaning and properly dispose of harmful and toxic chemicals that are found in your home. Help keep harmful products out of our landfills and local waterways by properly disposing of them at your local household hazardous waste collection facility. This month, the County of San Diego will be hosting an event in Spring Valley to collect household hazardous waste, electronic waste, and unused/unwanted medications.

To learn more about the upcoming event and other recycling events visit ILACSD’s Zero Waste database,


Zero Waste Festival Guide

With music festival season coming up, thousands will be flocking to Indio for Coachella and Stagecoach as well as many other festivals around the country. Navigating how to be as eco-friendly as possible while enjoying these festivals can be tricky. Often, it takes just a few steps to plan ahead so you can reduce your waste, protect the environment, and save a little money too.

Potter Junior High School Class C2B Sydney Phillips

Volunteer Spotlight

Each year, I Love A Clean San Diego hosts the Creek to Bay Cleanup with over 100 cleanup sites throughout San Diego County. This large-scale annual cleanup would not be possible without the help of our volunteer site captains, such as Sydney Phillips.

As an educator, Sydney is very passionate about empowering her students, both as individuals and as members of their community. Her cleanup site at Live Oak Park is close to the junior high where she teaches so the students are invested in keeping it clean. To anyone who is debating whether or not to volunteer for Creek to Bay, Ms. Phillips would say, “Absolutely do it. It’s empowering to see that you are having a direct impact on your community.”

ILACSD has been so fortunate to have help from teachers who are committed to getting their students involved in activities that directly make an impact on their community. We are so thankful for Sydney and all our site captains!

Did You Know? 

Did you know... since the dawn of Industrialization, the ocean has become 26% more acidic? This is due to the heavy reliance on fossil fuels for factories, electricity production, and transportation. Acidic oceans pose a threat to all marine organisms with a calcium carbonate shell, including oysters, corals, sea snails, and plankton. Do your part to keep our oceans healthy by unplugging electronics, shopping locally, and carpooling as often as possible.
