Hazardous Waste Disposal has become easy in San Carlos, California
Recycling has become more and more important on the mid-Peninsula and in Silicon Valley, as it has elsewhere in the country. Cities in California are mandated to reduce waste by large percentages in the upcoming years, and they are making it very easy for us to pitch in and do our part.
We're fortunate in San Carlos to have systems in place to make recycling very simple and safe. First it was plastics, glass and paper recycling, then green waste (including food scraps to feed these handy little buckets, then added to the yard clipping bin) and now--hazardous waste pick up!
The latest program I've learned about is the Door-to-Door Hazardous Household Waste program. The steps are clearly outlined on the RethinkWaste web site.
Some acceptable products include:
- paint and painting supplies
- insecticides and herbicides
- fluorescent lights, tubes and CFLs
- pesticides, non-empty aerosol cans
If you're a resident of San Carlos, Belmont, Hillsborough, Menlo Park, San Mateo or the West Bay Sanitary District all you need to do is call Curbside, Inc (1-800-449-7587) or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
What a great service this is--providing us with an easy, safe way to dispose of all those products lurking around our garage and storage areas!
