Go Green at September Recycling Events in Foster City

August 20th, 2014

Recycling in Foster City helps keep our part of the state clean and beautiful, so it’s something many residents take pretty seriously. So seriously, in fact, that events are organized year round to make sure recyclables get where they need to go. September will see several of these events.

E-waste Recycling: Sept. 6

Old laptops, mobile phones, and other electronic waste don’t have to end up clogging our landfills. By recycling their valuable metals and components, we can get years of further use out of obsolete electronics. Bring your old electronics to the City Hall parking lot between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. for recycling.

Shred Event: Sept. 6

Protect your privacy by disposing of sensitive documents is a way that keeps them out of the hands of identity thieves. During this event, which takes place at the same time and location as the E-waste event, you can have your recyclable documents carefully shredded by machine.

Compost Giveaway: Sept. 20

Recycling in Foster City isn’t only about getting rid of your trash. At the Compost Giveaway, you’ll enjoy the benefits of being on the receiving end of recyclables. Compost is one of the most effective natural ways to give your garden a nutrient boost. Sometimes, though, the compost your household produces isn’t quite enough.

If you’d like to pick up free compost for your yard and garden, come to Boat Park between 8 a.m to 5 p.m. Bring a yard waste bag, plastic barrel, your pickup truck or other container.

Keep in mind, too, that curbside hazardous waste pickup is available year-round for consumer electronics, paint, insecticide, and other dangerous materials.
