Waste, Recycling

+ A valuable source of information for waste and recycling issues in the Morongo Basin is the San Bernardino County Solid Waste Management page.

+ The Household Hazardous Waste site for the Morongo Basin is located at 62499 Twentynine Palms Highway, just west of the Transportation/Flood Control Building. Until August 2021, the site will be open the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month from 9AM to 1PM. Beginning in August, the site will be open only the 3rd Saturday of each month. More information can be found in the County Fire Department brochure.

+ Take a look at this chart to see how long these commonly discarded items take to decompose.

+ The Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center recycles tons of materials each year, including commonly recycled materials but also the residue of its training operations.  This flyer (PDF) explains how they recycle "range residue."

+ Thanks to the Town of Yucca Valley for this list of Morongo Basin recycling centers.
