Waste Management closing Paso Robles Recycling Center
Waste Management announced Wednesday that it will be closing the Paso Robles Recycling Center at its 3350 Riverside Ave. location on July 3.
“We appreciate the public’s loyal support in all the years the recycling center was in service,” said Dan Harris, district manager for Waste Management. “Our entire team is focused on assisting the public with their recycling needs during this transition so that our customers may continue with their recycling efforts.”
“The closure of the Waste Management Paso Robles Recycling Center is due to the low volumes of recyclables following the City of Paso Robles’ hauler not renewing its contract for processing of recyclables with Waste Management,” says Eloisa Orozco, area communications manager for Waste Management of Southern California
With the closure of the Paso Robles Recycling Center, residents and customers may take their recyclables to State Certified Recycling Center and State Certified Processing Center at Waste Management’s Atascadero Mid-State Recycle Station located at 7625 San Luis Avenue in Atascadero with hours of operation: Tuesday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.; closed for Lunch 12:30 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., and closed Sundays and Mondays.
For additional information during this transition and for a list of acceptable recyclable items at the Atascadero site, contact the Mid-State Recycling Station team at (805) 466-3636.
