Recology San Mateo County Debuts Instructional Videos!

“How –To” Videos Highlight Upcoming Programs 

Recology San Mateo County has produced a compilation of instructional videos to help customers learn more about the new programs coming to their area as part of our continued preparation for rolling out collection services to the twelve member agencies in the RethinkWaste service area. The videos are cutomized for three different types of customers: Single Family Homes, Multi-Family Dwellings and Commercial Customers.

The goal of the videos was simple: to provide our customers with informative videos that are enjoyable to watch and that enable our customers to learn about the many services we have to offer. We’re very excited about the new programs we’re offering and we hope the videos convey that.

Each video highlights “CartSMART” (for Residential customers) and “BizSMART” (for Multi-Family Dwellings and Commercial customers).

CartSMART features weekly single-stream recycling, a composting program and garbage collection services for residential customers.

BizSMART features weekly single-stream recycling and garbage collection with optional compost services. Each video also features a section called “Beyond the Cart,” highlighting proper disposal of hazardous waste and bulky-item pick up services.

Videos can be viewed in full length in both English and Spanish on Recology San Mateo County’s website at  For those who are only interested in one topic in particular  (i.e. recycling or composting), the video is also broken up into individual chapters.

Recology San Mateo County takes over for Allied Waste of San Mateo County as of January 1, 2011 as the new collection services provider for the RethinkWaste member agencies.
