RethinkWaste received a grant from the State of California, Department of Conservation which paid for two trailers and 450 ClearStream® recycling and trash containers to be used at special events within the RethinkWaste area (Atherton, Belmont, Burlingame, East Palo Alto, Foster City, Hillsborough, Menlo Park, Redwood City, San Carlos, Unincorporated San Mateo County, San Mateo and West Bay Sanitary District). RethinkWaste will provide containers and staff to help manage these Special Events, which in turn, should decrease the amount of material going to the landfill and increase recycling.
Recycling and Garbage Services
During or After the Event
Recology San Mateo County offers Recycling and Garbage Services for your event, including Food Scraps Composting Collection Service. It is very important to plan ahead — there is a Special Events Form on the Allied web site that should be completed at least four weeks prior to your event.
