  • 1st Recycle Friday - Recycle Friday is every 2nd & 4th Friday morning of each month. Help Eastwood PTA turn your CRV (California Redemption Value) plastic bottles and aluminum cans into valuable funds for PTA programs and events. Note: milk containers are not acceptable. Drop off your recyclables at the large, metal container in the parking lot between Bolsa Chica Park and the school (end of the first turnaround for school drop off). It is really helpful for our volunteers if you have your cans and bottles in separate bags/boxes as this minimizes their "dirty" work and maximizes their valuable.
