On September 16, 2020, the Town of Atherton’s Council voted in favor of exiting the South Bayside Waste Management Authority Joint Powers Authority (JPA) and to finalize contract negotiations with GreenWaste Recovery for recycling, compost, and solid waste services. Full information about the Town’s decision to exit the JPA can be found here.
This means that the current contract the Town of Atherton has with Recology San Mateo County for waste collection services will expire on December 31, 2020.
As new information about the transition is finalized, relevant information for customers will be communicated on this page, as well as at Recology San Mateo County. The Town of Atherton has been a longtime valued member of the South Bayside Waste Management Authority (SBWMA/RethinkWaste) and we respect their decision.
Atherton customers can direct all inquiries regarding new services and rates that will begin January 1, 2021 to GreenWaste Recovery at (650) 798-5999 or by visiting the GreenWaste Atherton website.
