Go to Temecula Recycling on Diaz Rd. Cans, bottles, garbage disposals, metal racks, cords, DVD players, and more. Some items require a $1-$5 payment to the state of California to recycle certain items.

      I have spoken to the owners and have been assured that indeed items are recycled! You can also peruse the grounds and see what they have.
