Palos Verdes Recycle Center to Close
January 8, 2015

Due to significant unavoidable rising costs and the availability of alternate facilities and programs, the Palos Verdes Recycle Center (PVRC) will close permanently on March 31, 2015. Operating losses and the cost of site improvements required by new state regulations make the continued operation of the PVRC infeasible. A public information meeting to learn about other recycling centers in the area will be conducted in the Frances Young Hall at the South Coast Botanic Garden at 6:30 p.m. on February 17. The address is 26300 Crenshaw Boulevard, Palos Verdes Peninsula, 90274.
