I agree that the best idea is start with the source...in the meantime, maybe this will be useful...

In Poway we have Edco as our waste company, they only take 1 and 2 plastics, so I have saved my 5's and 6's and taken them down to the San Diego recycling center off of 52/Convoy.  They will take them if they are separated by number.  It appears that they will even pay you for them - but there was a bit of a language difficulty when I was there and I didn't really care if I got any money or not, so I just gave them what I had.   

What I don't know for sure is if the stuff actually gets recycled - or do they just say they recycle it?  Anyone know for sure?

I have heard that you can take your plastic stuff to Cactus Recycling too.  In fact, a few months ago when La Mesa had their sustainability fair, Catus was there and taking all numbered plastics. 

If you hear of a better way, let me know. I have a couple trashcans full of 5's and 6's.
