Your Three Carts

Whether you’re a business owner, property manager, or resident, Recology San Bruno works with you to develop tailored solutions to your recycling, organics, and garbage collection needs. Learn more about What Goes Where.


Food scraps, soiled paper, and plants go in the green compost cart.  Order a kitchen compost pail. Why compost?


Paper, glass bottles, cardboard, cans, and most plastics, marked #1-#7 (no black plastic or plastic bags please!).  Commercial customers may use clear plastic bags to bundle their recyclable materials.


What is trash? Not much! Thin plastics (bags and saran wrap), cat litter, animal waste, Styrofoam, ceramics, and broken glass to name a few. To see a full list of items, view our sorting guide.

Cart Placement

Please place your bins curbside in the street, with the wheels against the curb and the lid pointed toward the street. If you live on a street without a curb you can place them roadside. Place your bins about 2-3 feet apart, all facing the same direction. This helps out our drivers to ensure quick and safe service.
