Make Every Day Earth Day

On April 22, Earth Day is honored around the world. It has come to symbolize a movement to clean and protect the environment. Daly City, in partnership with Allied Waste, will be hosting a number of events to promote Earth Day. Please consider participating in one of these events and do your part to be kind to the Earth.

FREE Recycling & Reuse Drop-off Event, Saturday, April 18, 8am-12pm
Mussel Rock Transfer Station, 120 Westline Drive
Some restrictions apply; click here for more information.

Recycle: This event provides an opportunity to drop-off recyclables, appliances, scrap metal, mattresses, small electronics, used motor oil, batteries, fluorescent bulbs and tubes, yard waste, and food waste.

Reuse: Goodwill Industries will be onsite to accept items in good reusable condition, such as clothes, housewares, books, bicycles, and furniture. Your donated items fund Goodwill’s job programs, giving people a second chance and a dignified path out of poverty.
