Composting organic items like food scraps and yard debris is not only a great way to reduce the amount of waste we send to the landfill, but it’s also easy! If your hauler provides the curbside collection of compostable materials (check our hauler map), then the process is as simple as taking out your recycling or garbage. You can also compost at home by creating a backyard compost pile, by utilizing worms to create vermicompost, or by grasscycling. All of these at-home methods have the added benefit of giving you a wonderful soil amendment for your plants.
CURBSIDE COMPOSTING COLLECTION
Not all garbage haulers in San Mateo County provide curbside collection for organic waste. Please check our hauler map to determine if your hauler provides curbside collection services, as well as what materials are accepted in the cart.
