Where Does It Go? Do these items go in your blue cart? Where do they go if they don’t? Broken umbrellas, toys, pet carriers, plastic shelving, mixers and VCRs.

Recycle us in the blue cart and we’ll get whipped up into something g new. Still usable clothing, sports equipment, shoes and books.

Don’t put us in the blue cart. We’ve still got a lot of kick left! Please donate us. Video tapes, CDs & DVDs, cassette tapes and CFL bulbs.

We don’t go in your blue cart, but we are still recyclable. Take us to the Palo Alto Recycling Center and let us play a new role.

Your curbside recycling cart can take more items than ever. Even if your item doesn’t go in the blue cart, don’t despair! There are other reuse or recycling options available. Zero Waste Palo Alto is here to help you figure out “what goes where.” Visit us online where we have a variety of information and tools to help you. Or you can call or email us, we’re glad to help! Check out our new enewsletter, Zero Waste Palo Alto eNews, a resource for sharing information about zero waste, current events and how you can be part of the effort!

outdoors & recreation | 35 WELCOME TO INFO PALO ALTO Tucked inside our 17th annual INFO Palo Alto resource guide, you’ll find inspiration for trying something new — mountain biking? square dancing? playing an instrument? — as well as basic facts about your community.

Our “By the Numbers” section offers insights into demographics, from ethnic breakdown to educational attainment, median age and the price of buying a house (yes, it went up this year). We also get a sense of where people work here, with our list of Palo Alto’s largest employers.

Veronica Weber

At your fingertips are easily findable ways to contact government officials, from state senators to members of the Historic Resources Board. Or, a quick overview of what services are available for seniors, or lists of Palo Alto child care centers.

education | 48

There’s even a section on historic firsts, from when Stanford University opened (1891) to when Palo Alto established its first traffic law (1905), with the speed limit listed as “a slow trot.” Later achievements include opening of the Opportunity Center for formerly homeless people in 2006. In addition to the thousands of listings inside, you can visit www. PaloAltoOnline.com (select Community Resources) and read an expanded version. Online you’ll also find information about our surrounding communities, including Stanford, Menlo Park, Atherton, Portola Valley, Woodside and Mountain View, as well as others in our region. Our cover photo this year — a Great White Egret at the Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve — was shot by Veronica Weber. If you’ve got content suggestions for next year, please email editor@ paweekly.com. We appreciate your feedback. Carol Blitzer Editor, INFO Palo Alto
