Someone is stealing my recyclables. What can I do?
City and State law prohibit the theft of recyclables. If you see a “thief” taking your recyclables, obtain the vehicle license number, car description, time of the theft, description of the person, direction they were heading and report the theft to the non-emergency Police dispatch office at 415-553-0123. Also, call Sunset Scavenger at (415) 330-1300 or Recology Golden Gate at (415) 626-4000 during business hours to report the theft of recyclables. We will request that the police patrol areas with repeated problems.
For your safety, do NOT confront the recycling thieves.
