recyclingRecycling, Etc.
We got great questions this week!
Where can fluorescent light bulbs be recycled?
The easiest way to recycle fluorescent light bulbs is to drop them off at select hardware stores. Home Depot, Orchard Supply Hardware, and IKEA stores accept the bulbs. They may also be dropped off at the Shoreway Environmental Center or you make an appointment to bring them to San Mateo County's Hazardous Waste drop off.
Are the half gallon milk cartons recyclable or compostable?
Milk and juice cartons are recyclable and go in the blue recycling bin.

Where we can recycle our old electronics like old hair dryers, power cords, etc.?
Yes, e-waste items such as these can be taken to Green Citizen, a local electronic recycling center known for their responsible and trackable e-waste recycling. Another option is to bring the items to an e-waste event. We have one scheduled in Burlingame on June 30th from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Caltrain Parking Lot "O." See the list of all local e-waste events here.
You may also make an appointment to drop off e-waste and other hazardous waste like paint and chemicals at a San Mateo County's Hazardous Waste drop off location.
