Carlsbad Earth Month Celebrations for April 2020

Earth Month Celebrations in Carlsbad

April 2020


As many other communities will do, Carlsbad will celebrate Earth Month in April 2020, with a number of events for residents.


Earth Day graphicHere’s the schedule of Carlsbad’s Earth Month events – be sure to add them to your calendar so you don’t miss out!


Saturday April 4th is the Shred and Recycle It event – you can get rid of sensitive documents for free in an environmentally-safe way. Registration is required at (760) 929-9400 or on the waste management website, and runs from March 16th through April 3rd, or until they reach capacity. Proof of residency is needed!


Saturday April 11th is the Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Event. This is only for Carlsbad residents (proof of residency required) and an appointment is necessary, with registration required until event is full, beginning March 23rd. Drop off is at 5815 El Camino Real


On Saturday April 18th residents can enjoy the Earth Day 50th Anniversary Celebration at the Pine Avenue Community Park, at 3209 Harding Avenue from 9 am until 12 noon. Advance registration is needed. There will be lots of fun with quick pickle making, crop swapping, free composting workshops, and other eco-friendly activities, plus live music.


Also on April 18th, from 9 am until 1 pm, take advantage of the Donate Don’t Waste Collection event at Fire Station 1 at 1275 Carlsbad Village Drive. Instead of dropping your stuff at the landfill, why not donate small home appliances, small furniture items, electronics, house-wares and home décor, sporting goods, plus gently used clothing, shoes and accessories that can be reused by Goodwill.


The 18th Annual Creek to Bay Clean-up takes place in Carlsbad, and over 100 sites around San Diego County, from 9 am until Noon, Saturday April 25th. See the Creek to Bay Clean-up website for the current sites for clean-ups and for registration which begins April 1.


Celebrate Arbor Day on April 25th in Carlsbad by helping the Parks and Recreation Department, and other Carlsbad residents, plant trees in our community from 8 until 10:30 am, at Pine Avenue Community Park (3209 Harding Avenue). Help Carlsbad maintain its Tree City status (15 years as of the 2019 update).


Just a quick caveat…just in case. Given all the events, meetings, classes, etc. that are being canceled by many communities due to the coronavirus, it’s possible some of these activities may be canceled or rescheduled as well. I will let you know if I hear, but you can also check with the City of Carlsbad website for Earth Month for updates.

Hi Jeff,  This is a great list of Earth Month Celebration Events.  There seems to be something for everyone.  Thanks for sharing.

Morning Jeff.

Sad to say, but I suspect a lot of those events will be canceled.  Hopefully, by then this Coronavirus will be on the wain, so we can move on

Hi Jeff... no doubt that Carlsbad is jumping into Earth Month celebrations with both feet... hopefully events won't need to be cancelled due to the coronavirus.

Good morning, Jeff Dowler, CRS good series of events and I hope they're not canceled....but something tells me those that don't allow social distancing might be canceled....

What a nice list of events.  Hopefully they will not be canceled, and be re-scheduled instead.  A

I think one positive effect that is coming from all of this virus stuff and things shutting down is that the earth is likely getting a break from pollution and such and becoming refreshed.

Celebrations have come to a halt here,....waiting for normalcy to return.

Keep Carlsbad Beautiful!

Jeff Dowler, CRS - These are wonderful ways to give back to the community and keep it healthy too! You are a natural advocate for that, and I appreciate it too.

Thanks Bob Crane 

I'm pretty impressed with what Carlsbad does regarding the environment to begin with and this is a good example. Hopefully they can proceed with these activities - time will tell.
