Waste Management of North County/Coast Waste Management conducts operations from two local hauling districts, one in Oceanside and one in Carlsbad.  Each district maintains an administrative office open to the public Monday through Friday, 8am – 5pm.

For inquiries about your service, or to set up new services, call Waste Management’s Customer Service Monday through Friday, 7am – 5pm, and Saturday 8am – 11am.

Waste Management of North County/Coast Waste Management operates two buyback and recycling centers. These centers help local residents in Carlsbad, Del Mar, Oceanside Solana Beach and other North County regions keep our communities clean by accepting recyclables such as aluminum, glass and plastic in exchange for cash, as well as e-waste and household batteries.

If you're looking to redeem your cans and bottles for CRV, please visit our buyback and recycling centers at the following locations. For all sites, please contact customer service at 1(800) DUMPSTER with any questions. Go to the Web page for the household hazardous waste (HHW) collection facilities for more information about safely disposing of HHW.
