Donation Weeks November 7-19, 2022

October 18, 2022

Just in time for Veteran’s Day and America Recycles Day, the City of Oceanside and Waste Management invite residents to donate reusable items curbside, preventing perfectly good materials from going to the landfill, all while benefiting the Oceanside Disabled American Veteran's Thrift Store.

During the period of November 7-11 and November 14-18, residents may donate up to eight gently used household items by contacting Waste Management at 760-439-2824 to schedule a pick-up, at least 2 days prior to their regular collection day. This program does not accept mattresses.

For items beyond repair, reuse or refurbishment, the City and Waste Management provide Landfill Weeks twice per year. Residents can call Waste Management to schedule a curbside landfill pick up of broken or soiled items between December 5-16, 2022.  

Along with these services, Oceanside residents can also schedule a large item landfill pick up of up to five items, three times each year for broken and soiled items by calling Waste Management at 760-439-2824.

For more information about acceptable items, please contact Waste Management customer service at: 760-439-2824.
