The Del Mar Fairgrounds, in Del Mar, CA, is a 375-acre facility that is owned and operated by the 22nd District Agricultural Association, an agency for the State of California. It hosts the annual San Diego County Fair (with an average annual attendance of more than 1.2 million), the Del Mar Thoroughbred Racing Meet (43 days of horse racing) and a satellite wagering facility. The Fairgrounds has a Recreation Center with tennis, RV parking, mini golf and golf driving range. Del Mar Fairgrounds started its recycling program in 1985 (with office paper) and has since expanded to include recovery of more than 30 different materials including food discards, beverage containers and cardboard. Recycling bins are placed next to every trash can at all events. The two largest components of the Del Mar Fairgrounds' waste stream are green waste and animal bedding/manure. The Fairgrounds already owned its trash collection equipment, which it converted for use in its recycling program.
