Recycling benefits students in Ripon schools
Placeholder Image

Ripon’s recycling program is supporting the community schools’ parent/faculty clubs benefiting the children within the Ripon Unified School District. 

The recycling program is a public-private partnership between the parent/faculty clubs, the American Recycling Company and the City of Ripon to provide the recycling of newspapers, cardboard, mixed paper, aluminum cans, plastic beverage containers, glass bottles, Styrofoam and electronic wastes. 

The waste materials may be dropped off at any time in the old Nestle’s Coffee parking lot at 178 Industrial Avenue. Volunteers from the schools’ parent/faculty clubs are available on any Saturday from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. to offer assistance.

Electronic waste may be dropped off at the same location during those collection hours – including televisions, radios, copiers, phones, computers, monitors and printers. Household batteries – including lithium and cell phone batters – may be dropped off at city hall, the police department, the library and at the Ripon Senior Center on Wilma Avenue.

Up to five gallons of used motor oil will be accepted by the O’Reilly Auto Parts store on West Main Street just east of Jack Tone Road. 

The disposal of certain chemicals, paint, oil and medical sharps/syringes can be taken to the San Joaquin County Household Hazardous Waste Facility located at 7850 R.A. Bridgeford Street, Stockton, CA 95206. Hours are Thursdays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.
