Recology San Mateo County’s Coats for Kids Program

Recology San Mateo County is excited to launch its annual Coats for Kids Program to collect new and gently used coats to donate to those in need of a warm coat during the cold weather season.

From Monday, November 9th through Friday, November 13th, drivers from Recology will collect coats curbside from residential homes on their collection day in Atherton, Belmont, Burlingame, East Palo Alto, Foster City, Hillsborough, Menlo Park, North Fair Oaks, Redwood City, San Carlos, San Mateo, San Mateo County (county “pockets” serviced by Recology San Mateo County), and West Bay Sanitary District.

Residents in the participating communities are asked to place coats in a clear plastic bag marked “Coats for Kids” and to then place the bag next to or on the top of their blue Recycle Cart on their regular collection day, during the week of November 9th to 13th.

Collection containers labeled “Coats for Kids” will also be placed at various locations throughout participating cities noted above and Recology’s office where residents can drop off coats from November 9th through November 20th.

Drop off locations are available for anyone interested in making a donation, even if their city is not participating in the program this year. See below for a list of local drop off collection sites.

At the end of the annual drive, Recology will deliver all of the donated coats to local non-profit agencies for distribution to those in need.
