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.



Donate used or outdated office supplies to RAFT.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

    • printers
