City Council to declare ‘Recycle Day’


At its next meeting, the Malibu City Council is scheduled to declare Nov. 15 “America Recycles Day” in Malibu, with the goal of promoting waste reduction, composting, reuse of materials and purchasing recycled products. 

In observance of the day, the city is hosting two recycling events at City Hall. On Nov. 15, the city conducts Community Shred Day, when the public can bring documents to be shredded and recycled for free, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Household Battery Recycling event will take place from Nov. 15-30, allowing residents to drop off batteries for proper disposal at the Senior Center and reception area during regular business hours. 

“We encourage all citizens to become involved in recycling activities and to learn more about a variety of recyclable and recycled products so that we may all become more environmentally conscious consumers,” Malibu Mayor Lou La Monte said. “By celebrating America Recycles Day, we can further promote recycling as an environmentally efficient and economically intelligent habit.” 

The city has been conducting a variety of recycling events through recent programs. Last year, nearly 900 tons of bottles, cans, paper, and electronic waste were recycled in Malibu, according to a release from the city.
