Get rid of your old small electronics the green and easy way.
If you live in San Mateo County, you can do that, and do it for free, at the Small Electronics Recycling Drop-Off.
So if you’ve got an old microwave or phone, TV or fax machine (remember those?), computer or printer or stereo – and you want to get rid of it, responsibly – this is your chance.
The place? Redwood City Public Works Facility parking lot, 1400 Broadway.
The day? Saturday, July 14, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
This recycling drop-off is in Redwood City, but it is for ALL county residents. Just bring proof that you live in San Mateo County (driver’s license, utility bill, that sort of thing).
There is a short list of things you CAN’T bring (like batteries and fluorescent lights), and you can find the full list (plus the full list of what you CAN drop-off) here.
