Recycle CenterRecycle Center Map

The Puente Hills Material Recovery Facility (PHMRF) Recycle Center (RC12848) is located near the Pomona (60) and San Gabriel River (605) freeways (see map above). Operating hours are 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Tuesday through Saturday.  The PHMRF Recycle Center is closed on Sunday, Monday, and all major holidays.

Turn in your recyclable materials for cash at the PHMRF Recycle Center. The facility is a buy-back recycling center, which allows you to sell your qualified recycle products for the published California Redemption Value (CRV) and/or scrap value (see price table below).  The PHMRF Recycle Center purchases CRV containers (aluminum cans, plastics soft drink bottles, glass bottles), and pays competitive scrap rates for aluminum, cardboard, and most paper products.

The PHMRF Recycle Center also accepts "free drop off" of scrap metal products.  In addition, you can also turn in electric products you want to discard (TVs, computers, etc.) in our free electronic waste (e-waste) bins. (Please note that the free e-waste bins are for residents/households only and limited to 2 items per residence/household.)  The PHMRF Recycle Center also offers free document shredding service, so bring your documents to the PHMRF Recycle Center and place them inside a locked and secured container for destruction by a certified document shredding company.

The facility does not accept used oil at this time.  You can locate the nearest used oil recycling facility by clicking here. This link connects you to the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle) web page for its used oil recycling program.

The PHMRF Recycle Center is located next to the PHMRF and is accessible from the following two entrances. The Recycle Center phone number is (562) 908-4875.
