Bulky Item Curbside Collection

The Bulky Item Recycling Program is only available to residents of the City of San Francisco. Participating properties must have an active residential or apartment account with Recology Sunset Scavenger or Recology Golden Gate.

      • Place items neatly at the curb in front of your residence no earlier than 6PM the day before the scheduled collection and no later than 6AM the day of the scheduled collection.
      • Write RECOLOGY on a piece of paper and attach it to one of your items. This will let City agencies know that the material is scheduled for a collection.
      • Unless you identify an alternate curbside location (back alley, etc.), we will look for material in front of your service address.
Effective October 9, 2020, textiles are now part of the Bulky Item Recycling proram. You can also donate to Goodwill at their distribution center, located at 121 Wisconsin St, San Francisco, CA 94107.
