Is there curbside collection for household hazardous waste?

Residential Curbside Pickup
If you have a number of items, you may schedule a free pick-up by calling customer service: (415) 330-1405. You’ll be asked to describe the types and amounts of the household hazardous waste you have for pickup.

  • Pickups are available from Wednesdays – Saturdays, 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
  • Hazardous waste containers cannot be left outside on the sidewalk, so you must be home.
  • Priority is given to disabled and elderly residents who do not drive.

We are not currently able to pick up unknown or unlabeled wastes. If you have unknown chemicals, please let us know when you call so we can advise.
