City of San Diego residents can have paperwork securely shredded and recycled for free

SAN DIEGO – Just finished filing your latest tax return and wondering how to safely dispose of old tax files? City of San Diego residents can take advantage of the city’s annual free Tax File Recycling event.

Until April 25, city residents can drop off documents in secured bins at the Miramar Recycling Center, where they will be shredded and recycled. Hours are 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday (closed Sundays) and the address is 5165 Convoy St.

Participants are limited to one banker’s box of files to recycle per day. A banker’s box is approximately 10 inches high, 15 inches wide and 25 inches deep.

This free service is for City of San Diego residents only; businesses can find recycling services by going to and searching for “Paper Shredding Services.” Diverting trash from the landfill is part of the city’s Zero Waste Plan and supports climate action goals.
