Parking Lot E and H Closure Notification
As part of the City of Burlingame’s Parking Lot Resurfacing Project, Parking Lot E and H will be closed starting Thursday, July 26th and will be reopened Thursday, August 9th.

As construction activities approach the parking lots, "No Parking" signs will be posted no later than 48 hours prior to the actual construction. Due to construction activities, please make a special effort to keep your shoes clean to avoid tracking oil and unwanted materials into your vehicle.

Apply for Free Emergency Supplies
Up to 20 emergency caches are available for neighborhoods that participate in drills and other neighborhood activities. The caches, valued at $550, are for use in neighborhoods in the event of an emergency. They are filled with emergency supplies that include first aid essentials, tools that enable volunteers to protect themselves (hard hats, safety goggles, dust masks, gloves, etc.); and materials needed to set up an emergency base and equip teams of volunteers to aid victims and assess damage after a disaster.

The Burlingame Neighborhood Network will be distributing these caches to neighborhoods that have a track record of engagement with emergency preparedness activities and training, including Citywide Emergency Drills. The caches will allow neighbors to help one another in the immediate aftermath of a disaster, without having to scramble for suppliers. Emergency responders routinely advise that residents will be on their own for as long as a week after a major catastrophe, while they are taking care of critical emergencies.

Burlingame residents who would like a cache for their neighborhood can request an application form by sending an email to info@burlingamenetwork.org. Applications are due August 30.
Recycling Etc.
Your recycling questions answered!
Are there ways to donate old shoes?
Yes, if you have new or gently worn shoes it is best to donate them rather than to recycle them. There are numerous organizations that will accept donated shoes, such as Goodwill or Soles4Souls. If the shoes are extremely worn out, then they can be disposed through the Bulky Item Collection Program (residents receive two free pickups per year).

Are plastic utensils recyclable?
No, these must be disposed in the garbage bin.

Send your recycling questions to jlee@burlingame.org. Find past questions and answers here; and an excellent resource for what goes in what bin here.
