New Recycling Program

San Carlos Green Team Program

Have you been wondering about the new Recycle, Compost and Garbage Collection Services coming to the City of San Carlos starting October 13, 2010? Interested in learning more?

RethinkWaste is working with the City of San Carlos to recruit San Carlos Green Team Block Leaders to help spread the word about the new CartSMART services. San Carlos Green Team Block Leaders will be the first to know about these exciting new programs and will become the neighborhood experts on CartSMART. RethinkWaste will provide training, manuals and a tool kit – everything you’ll need to get your friends and neighbors excited about this new era in sustainability!

The training will be held September 28, 2010 (see below for details). Food and refreshments will be provided.  Volunteers will also receive a RethinkWaste messenger briefcase and the opportunity to enter a raffle for gift certificates and prizes.

Please join us for this training and become a Green Team Block Leader. Your involvement can be as informal and simple as just answering questions from neighbors to arranging formal presentations and home “Recycle” parties according to your schedule and availability.

Training Date:

September 28, 2010


San Carlos Library, Community Rooms, 2nd Floor
610 Elm Street
San Carlos, CA 94070


6:00 pm  – Registration
6:15 pm – 8:00 pm – Training

Please RSVP by September 27 at, and include in the email that the RSVP is for the San Carlos training. Please share this with other San Carlos residents to get the word out and email us with any questions you may have.

  1. Update on Garbage & Recycling Carts and Services in San Carlos

    Here is a status report and some quick updates on Garbage and Recycling Services in San Carlos:

    * Recology is working with its contractor to complete the delivery of the new wheeled carts to San Carlos residents by November 17th. A detailed delivery schedule by street in San Carlos is available and is linked below.

    * Residents have the choice of keeping their existing recycling tubs or having them picked up. For pick up, simply place them upside down (empty) at the curb next to your carts.

    * If your recycling tubes were mistakenly picked up, you can get a set returned to you by calling Allied Waste at (650) 592-2411.

    * Weekly Food Scraps and Yard Clipping Recycling service (Green Cart) continues through Dec. 31 from Allied Waste and then will continue in the new year with Recology.

    * Recycling service (Blue Cart) will remain on an every other week schedule from Allied Waste through Dec. 31. It will switch to weekly service on Jan. 3, 2011 with Recology. However, residents can mix recyclables in the Blue Cart as soon as it is received.

    * The information kit attached to the new Garbage Cart (Black Cart) does not need to stay on the cart. It is designed to be removed and then placed in a convenient location in your home as a reminder about the new programs from Recology.

    For more information on the new services and CartSMART, visit Recology at, Rethink Waste at or call (650) 595-3900.
