Recycling Resources, Practice and Policies
Basura Bash is committed to responsible recycling. Some materials are too dirty to recycle by the time volunteers retrieve them from the creeks, but we strive to direct as much as possible to local recyclers who donate their services to Basura Bash.
Where do the Recyclable Items we separate from the debris go?
Our Sponsor, GreenStar is providing the services to recycle all the plastic bottle and aluminum cans that the volunteers pick up during the Annual Basura Bash Clean Up
Where can we bring Electronic items to be recycled?
Corona Visions Inc. will be at the Woodlawn Lake Casting Pond to provide electronic recycling services for you and the community. For a detailed list on the items they will be accepting, follow this link. http://www.coronavisions.com/electronics.html
How are the Tires Recycled?
Basura Bash Sponsor Firestone will donate the tire disposal for the entire clean-up.
All tires are delivered directly to Firestone by our City of San Antonio Municipal Solid Waste Management Department crew.
Thanks to both Firestone and the City of San Antonio!

And Metal Wastes? Are they Recycled?
Yes, larger metal items like car wheels and such are collected and sent to the metal recyclers.
