Recology San Mateo County is launching its Coats for Kids Program to collect new and gently used coats to donate to those in need of a warm coat during the cold weather season. From Monday, November 5 through Friday, November 9, drivers from Recology will collect coats curbside from residential homes on their collection day in Atherton and Menlo Park.
Residents are asked to place coats in a clear plastic bag marked “Coats for Kids” and to then place the bag next to or on the top of their blue Recycle Cart on their regular collection day.
Collection containers labeled “Coats for Kids” will also be placed at various locations throughout participating cities where residents can drop off coats. At the end of the drive, Recology will deliver all of the donated coats to local non-profit agencies for distribution to those in need.
