Recology San Mateo County Bare Necessities Toiletries Drive

Recology San Mateo County is currently collecting donations for our annual Bare Necessities Toiletries Drive.  Each year we partner with CORA of San Mateo County to collect toiletries for CORA’s housing and shelter programs.  CORA is a local organization that helps support victims of domestic abuse.  They are a great asset to our community, and we love to help support their programs.

To donate, please drop off your items at the Recology San Mateo County office by March 31:
