Recycling encouraged at Fiesta del Sol

SOLANA BEACH — Waste Management announced plans to encourage eco-friendly practices at the 35th annual Fiesta del Sol taking place May 31 and June 1 in Solana Beach.

Waste Management will serve as an environmental services sponsor at Fiesta del Sol, encouraging all attendees to “go green” while participating in the fun. Throughout the weekend, Waste Management will promote green habits through in-kind recycling services and clearly marked recycling collection boxes to encourage recycling. In addition, Waste Management representatives will be randomly rewarding event-goers who are caught recycling at the event.

“We are very excited to participate in Fiesta del Sol,” said Lori Somers, community and municipal relations manager for Waste Management. “We enjoy opportunities like this where our team can engage with and educate the community about how important it is to recycle often and recycle right.”

The Solana Beach Chamber has been hosting Fiesta del Sol, a free two-day music and crafts event, for 35 years as a kick-off to summer in Solana Beach. The event takes place every year at Fletcher Cove in Solana Beach.
