Get Rid of It

So you finally made the decision to let go of a few things…now where should you take them?

Here are a few of my favorite places:

Electronics Recycling

Green Citizen: Free electronics recycling, electronics buybacks and data destruction services.  They have numerous Bay Area locations.

General Green Living

Recycle Works:  San Mateo county’s one stop resource for recycling, reusing and green living.  They  have a handy map that links to garbage and recycling collection in the county.  Click on your city to find out specific resources.

Bulky Item Pickup

Recology:  They allow 2 bulky item pick ups per year.

Hazardous Material Pickup

Rethink Waste 

Paint Care

Your local paint store


Everyone has heard of Goodwill, but FreeCyclePick of the Litter, and St. Vincent de Paul’sare all great ways to get your things into new hands.
