Free Recycling Events

Every year, we plan recycling events just for our residents. In 2019, we completed two events and we thank everyone for participating. We are currently working on the plans for next year's events. We'll post those dates here as soon as they are available.

 Our free recycling events are open to all San Mateo residents, and feature:

  • E-Waste Drop Off - items such as camcorders, cell & desk phones, chips and components, computers, connectors/cables, DVD players, fax machines, fluorescent tubes (limit 5 per household), keyboards, lab equipment, laptops, mice, monitors, optical drives, PC boards, PDAs, printers, radios, scanners, servers, stereos, storage discs, tape and zip drives, televisions, UPS power supply units, video game consoles, and VCRs
  • Unacceptable items - NO household appliances such as cooktops, dishwashers, fans, floor heaters, ovens, stoves, refrigerators, freezers, or household hazardous waste.
  • Community Paper Shred - a maximum of 3 standard size banker boxes (10"x12"x15") for secure on-site destruction. Staples and paper clips are okay. Proof of residency required
