Community Shred & E-Scrap Recycling Events

Residents are encouraged to take advantage of the free Community Shred and Electronic Scrap (E-Scrap) events held annually by RethinkWaste and Recology San Mateo County on behalf of our participating Member Agencies. The list of 2021 events are below. Please note that the dates and times are subject to change due to the current pandemic. Check back here before events to ensure they are still happening.

Shred Events

Bring paper documents and confidential materials for safe and secure shredding done onsite.

Proof of residency in the City hosting the event is required. Limit 3 standard size bankers boxes (10″x12″x15″) per household. Shred events last until the time listed or until the truck is full, which ever comes first.

E-Scrap Recycling Events

Accepted items include: TVs, computers, printers, monitors, laptops, cables/cords, cell phones, MP3 and DVD players, and more (working or not).


Compost Giveaway Events

Recology and RethinkWaste team up with its member communities to annually give away compost made from yard trimmings and food scraps collected from residents and businesses in the service area. It’s a great soil amendment to enriching your plants and gardens.  Residents in participating communities may take compost at no charge at select locations as long as supplies last (amount varies by community.) Citizens bring shovels, gloves, containers, and proof of residency, and leave with rich compost for their gardens. Can’t make it to an event? No worries, as we provide compost for free to residents year-round at our Shoreway Environmental Center. Learn more about the compost giveaway for residents, schools, and community groups here.
