Fantastic! At long last San Mateo County communities will have single stream recycling available!
At long last San Mateo County communities will have single stream recycling & composting of food waste service available!
Great news! Recology will be the new service provider for garbage, recycling and compost pick up for San Mateo County residents. Under the current service, pick up of recyclables happens bi-monthly which means multiple bins fill up & sit at the side of our house. Residents also have to sort paper from metals/plastics and pick up of compostable food waste is not a provided service.
As a former San Francisco resident up until 2004, I’ve been sorely missing this type of compost/recycling program which SF has had in place for several years.
Full details here on Recology’s program including use of their bins. If you want to reduce your garbage bin size & save a little money each month, go to: http://www.recologysanmateocounty.com/single_family.htm by July 9th.
The new service will start January 3rd, 2011.
