April is Earth Month, and Carlsbad is celebrating with events and programs to help you reduce, reuse, recycle and more. Participation is free for Carlsbad residents. *Advanced registration is required for some events. Join us and help keep Carlsbad beautiful.
Shred and Recycle It*
April 20, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., 5815 El Camino Real
The City of Carlsbad and Waste Management will host a FREE document shred and recycle it event. This event gives an opportunity for Carlsbad residents to dispose of sensitive documents in an environmentally responsible way. Please make sure only sensitive documents are shredded since shredded paper fibers are almost too small to be recycled or slipped past paper screens.
Advance registration and proof of residency is required. Register at website: www.northcounty.wm.com. Registration is required and runs from April 1 – 19.

April 27, 9 a.m. – noon

April 27, 9 – 10:30 a.m., Coastal Rail Trail, south of Oak Avenue
