What is Team Up to Clean Up?


It is a program meant to bring residents and neighborhoods together in a joint effort to eliminate litter in our streets, storm drains, and waterways. Litter is not only unsightly, but also unsafe and harmful to our natural environment. We're seeking enthusiastic community members that want to help lead the charge against litter reduction in San Mateo.

Our program is in the brainstorming stage and we want to hear from you and any ideas you have! Some possibilities include:
  • Organizing litter pick-up events
  • Adopt-a-block programs
  • "Litter leaders" or "Block Captains"
  • Litter-Free schools &/or businesses

How much trash is in my neighborhood?


We maintain a trash generation map. Based on field observations and trash audits we have developed a city-wide trash generation map that tracks low, medium, and high trash levels.
