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 residents who reside on MCB Camp Pendleton, all inquiries about service should be directed to your area’s Base Housing Office.  Residents who reside in Oceanside, Carlsbad, Del Mar or Solana Beach, inquiries about your service, or to set up new services, should 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.
