FREE COMPOST WORKSHOPS

Learn how to turn your kitchen food scraps and yard trimmings into a rich soil amendment that will help your garden thrive. Compost Workshops are held at different locations within San Mateo County; continue to check back as they change monthly.

Workshops are free. Reservations are not necessary but encouraged so there is a way to contact participants in case a class is canceled.  To reserve a space in a workshop or for more information, please call the County of San Mateo RecycleWorks at 888-442-2666 or by emailing RecycleWorks.

Date and Times: TBA

 

FREECYCLE

To help keep our community sustainable and keep reusable items out of our landfill, consider joining San Bruno’s Freecycle Group.  This online group gives residents and businesses another resource for reuse within our community.  All items posted on the website must be FREE. If you have something to offer, or perhaps there is something you need, Freecycle may be your answer.

 

RESOURCE AREA FOR TEACHING (RAFT)

Donate used or outdated office supplies to RAFT. Before you head to the recycling center or throw things into the dumpster, consider contacting RAFT.  RAFT will assess your clean business discards, and take whatever is acceptable. There are very few materials that RAFT does not accept. In fact, it’s often the most unusual items that spark the most creative hands-on learning ideas and activities!

RAFT Acceptable Items:
Any used office item in good condition is, to RAFT, a newfound treasure – and that goes double for computer equipment! Some great items include:

    • labels
    • folders
    • binders
    • CD cases
    • CDs
    • printers
    • scanners
    • rulers
    • erasers
    • pens and pencils
