Bulky Item Collection Temporarily Suspended

Updated May 2, 2020

Recology has reinstated the Bulky Item Collection Program to new requests. Please be patient as there may be a backlog of residents wanting to use this program.

March 30, 2020

To prioritize the safety of their employees, customers, and the communities they serve, Recology San Mateo County has taken the precautionary measure to temporarily suspend the Bulky Item Collection Program in the RethinkWaste service area as of March 30, 2020. The Bulky Item Collection Program requires human handling of the materials, whereas weekly garbage collection is performed by mechanical means. The temporary suspension of this program avoids further risk of exposure of Recology Staff, while still providing other essential waste collection services, such as recycling, organics and solid waste collection services.

For more information, please visit the Recology website.

Please check back here or our social media channels for the latest updates on when the service will be available again.

Please note that recycling, composting, and garbage services are still occurring for residents and businesses by Recology San Mateo County in the RethinkWaste service area as this is an essential infrastructure service. Please continue to place carts out the night before your normal collection day to ensure proper service.
