How do I get a kitchen pail? Do I set my kitchen pail out curbside?

If you’re a new resident of San Mateo County, or you’ve lost or damaged your kitchen pail for compost material, contact Recology San Mateo County for a replacement. Kitchen pails are for in-home use only, so we request that you don’t set your kitchen pail out for service. Recology’s trucks are not equipped to lift and empty the pails.
