Prescription Drug Disposal Program
In 2009, the City instituted a prescription drug disposal program which allows residents to properly dispose of old or unwanted medications in a bin at City Hall during normal business hours. This program provides an avenue for residents to properly dispose of non-controlled prescription medications (the medications are ground up and incinerated) as opposed to ending up in the water table or landfill.
Document Shredding & E-Waste Collection
Rancho Mirage hosts several document shredding and e-waste collection events for residents at the Rancho Mirage City Hall parking lot located at 69-825 Highway 111, near Frank Sinatra Dr. The event is free and open to Rancho Mirage residents only with proof of residency. Shredding is limited to five (5) 12’’ x 17" x 9" boxes of documents (normal file box size) per resident. This helps residents dispose of sensitive documents safely and securely, and there is no need to remove staples, clips, or binders. All documents are shredded on site and then recycled. E-Waste (electronic components) such as old televisions, computers, cell phones, printers, and facsimile machines is also collected and recycled free.
Additional E-Waste Recycling Opportunities
Rancho Mirage residents can also bring old electronics (e-waste) to the Burrtec Waste and Recycling Center located at 41800 Corporate Way in Palm Desert, Monday thru Friday from 9am to 4pm, and Saturday from 9am to 1pm. Residents must show proof of residency to the clerk at the recycling center to take advantage of this free service.
Large or bulky electronics such as TVs or computer monitors are also picked up under the City's Bulky Item Pick-up program (requires an individual, residental account). Simply call the City's trash and recycling contractor (Burrtec) to set up an appointment for a free pick-up of large/bulky electronics on your regularly scheduled trash day. Burrtec may be reached at (760) 340-2113.
Residential Recycling Guide
Residential recycling "wheels" are available at City Hall, the City Hall Annex Building, and the Rancho Mirage Public Library. These handy guides describe what items can or cannot go into recycling containers. Please contact City Hall at (760) 324-4511 to request your recycling wheel.
Water-Conserving Irrigation Controllers
The City of Rancho Mirage has partnered with the Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) to offer qualifying residents the opportunity to purchase Weather-Based Irrigation Controllers at a significantly reduced price, while supplies last. This joint effort helps to accomplish the City’s and water district’s mutual goals of increased efficiency in landscape water use, reduced groundwater consumption, and elimination of street water run-off.
Many desert homeowners leave their irrigation controllers at a setting appropriate for summer throughout the year, wasting tens of thousands of gallons of water in the spring, fall and especially winter. The weather-based irrigation controllers self-adjust based on historical weather data, watering lawns less in the cooler months and more in the summer months. Homeowners using the weather-based controllers experience varied amounts of water savings, depending on the amount of water being wasted prior to installation. On average, homeowners can expect to use 30% less water, which will help preserve the valley’s precious groundwater and result in lower monthly water bills.
Interested residents can visit the water district’s website at www.cvwd.org to download the application and obtain a full list of eligibility requirements, program terms and conditions. Qualifying residents must have working irrigation systems in place and own the property where it will be installed. Applications will be processed as they are received and the controllers will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. The water district will provide installation, programming, and up to one follow-up visit, if needed.
