Toy Drive and Shop with a Cop

You may have already received information about the Police Departments efforts to get gifts to underprivileged children at local schools in our community. APD is working two separate programs.... Selby Lane Toy Drive and the Shop with a Cop Programs can be found HERE.

Additionally, the Police Department has created a gift registry to make it simple for people to purchase and ship directly to the Department. 

Target Gift Registry

We appreciate the efforts of our community in supporting the men and women of the Atherton Police Department and for being able to give back to the community. THANK YOU!

Rethink Waste Poster Contest

RethinkWaste is calling on all 3rd-5th grade students in our service area* to show off their artistic talent in our 2018 Rethink Recycling Holiday Edition Poster Contest. We are looking for students to create a poster with the theme of "Rethink Recycling for the Holidays."
How do you actively rethink recycling during the holiday season?  Do you practice the 4Rs of reducing, reusing, recycling and rot (composting)? Using the 4Rs helps us conserve resources and keeps materials out of the landfill. Show us what you're doing to help rethink recycling and all the R's during the holidays. 
The posters must be 8.5 x 14 inches (legal size) and any medium can be used, including paint, markers, crayons, colored pencils. Posters must be 2D and delivered flat. Bright, rich colors are encouraged. Only one entry per student will be accepted, and posters must include original artwork only.
The first place winner will have their poster enlarged and displayed and used on such items as the side of Recology San Mateo County’s residential collection vehicle in their City, at RethinkWaste’s Shoreway Environmental Center in San Carlos, and on RethinkWaste’s website, newsletters and other educational materials
Submissions are due to our San Carlos offices no later than December 21, at 12PM.
Please see the attached flyer for all the details and information and or visit our website at: for more details and posting information.
