Commercial Service & Fees

As a business owner, your disposal needs are varied and therefore, the rates are determined by a number of factors all based on your circumstances.

We have created a simplified version of the rates sheet to make finding your rate easier. You’ll need to know the following things to read the charts:

  1. The size of your cart
  2. How many containers you have serviced
  3. The number of days you receive service
Businesses have fees for garbage and fees for organics, so be sure to refer to the various parts of the fee summary below to get a complete picture of services and fees.

For Downtown San Mateo – defined as the area zoned as Central Business District or Central Business District Support – all solid waste containers must be at the curb no earlier than 6 p.m. the day prior to service and returned to their usual location by 11 a.m. the day of service.
