In Brief

Shred It

EDCO’s free October 15, 2022 Del Mar Recycles event will ke place from 9am-noon at Shores Park’s lower parking lot with on-site shredding (limit 3 banker boxes per household), drop-off of universal waste lamps, household batteries, unwanted pharmaceuticals, and sharps. Free mulch will be available for Del Mar residents while supplies last (self-serve; bring your own cans/bags, gloves and shovel).

Safe crossing Del Mar Heights Road

Design work for the traffic light to be installed at Del Mar Heights Road and Mercado Drive is expected to be completed by the end of this calendar year. Construction activities are projected to begin after Labor Day 2023. This project also includes the installation of solar-powered flashing beacons with signal-ahead warning signs at the crest peak between Mercado Drive and Mango Drive (near the intersection at Boquita Drive) to better warn drivers of the upcoming traffic signals at the bottom of the crest.
