Atherton, a town of 6,914 (2010 census), sits between the peninsula between the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean in San Mateo County. The bucolic community, adorned by elegant gardens and “heritage” trees that lend a stately air to the town, is quaint by design. The town’s forefathers acted to incorporate in 1923 mindful to preserve it as a strictly residential community, divided into large estates (like the 640 acre-estate purchased by Faxon D. Atherton, in 1860), so that the town’s picturesque character would remain unspoiled by future commercial development. That character, rural, densely-wooded (native live oaks, white oaks, bays, redwoods, cedars, pines and other decorative species), and elegant, remains still, though some of the large estates have been subdivided.

Recology San Mateo County offers weekly curbside pick-up of garbagerecyclables, and compost. Hard to recycle items such as CDs, ink cartridges, packaging materials, waste glass, and cooking oil can be recycled (check the site for great resources for single-family residences). But certain objects, such as motor oil and filters, bulky items, holiday trees, and hazardous waste are “beyond the cart” and require proper disposal at an appropriate center.

For items that exceed normal curbside pick-up capacity, such as:
