Report Recycling Scavengers to the Police

Coronado Unified School Districts is proud to do its part to help preserve the environment through the Citywide recycling program. The City and CUSD partner with EDCO to provide blue recycling containers for residents to dispose of glass, plastic, aluminum cans, paper and cardboard. However, it is important for people to know that recyclables placed in the blue carts are not up for grabs. These recyclable materials are the property of CUSD but become the property of EDCO once they are placed in the EDCO containers outside each CUSD facility. 

People are encouraged to report recycling scavengers to the Coronado Police Department by providing a description of the scavenger, as well as an approximate location. Coronado police officers will often advise first-time offenders of the laws before issuing a written warning or citation. To report a recycling scavenger, contact the Coronado Police Department at 619.522.7350.
