Zero Waste Events
Headed for Zero Waste
Here in the City of San Mateo, we are dedicated to sustainability and the well-being of our environment and residents. All events sponsored by the City are geared towards achieving zero waste. This means that we strive to divert as much material as we can away from the landfill.

Below are examples of Zero Waste events hosted by the City of San Mateo:

Bay Front Clean-up Bayfront Cleanup Garbage
Date: Generally held on the third Saturday in September of each year.

Every year, hundreds of volunteers pick up thousands of pounds of debris. After the event, we host a free BBQ to thank our volunteers for all their hard work. Come join in on the fun and help keep our Bay Front clean and beautiful!
