For large items that don’t fit or belong in your Recology carts, like old furniture, appliances, or mattresses, schedule a curbside Bulky Item Recycling pickup. This program does not accept hazardous waste, construction and demolition debris, or auto parts and tires.
Residential Bulky Item Recycling (Curbside)
Residential customers receive two curbside Bulky Item Recycling collections per year at no additional charge, and each unit in a multi-family building is eligible to receive one no-charge curbside collection. You may request additional Recology Bulky Item Recycling collections for a nominal fee. Once you’ve scheduled your pickup, please place your items next to the curb in front of your residence (take care not to block the sidewalk), and attach a sign that reads BIR (Bulky Item Recycling).
You may leave up to 10 items per collection, along with up to 10 additional boxes, bags, or bundles of textiles per collection. Please view the full list of accepted items.
Residential & Commercial Hauling Services
Residential and commercial customers can schedule Bulky Item Recycling collections for a fee, either curbside or inside pickup (for residential customers who have exceeded their free collections or for larger pickups).
This Recology hauling service is provided to SF residents and businesses as needed or on a daily basis. Unlike the residential curbside program, there is no limit to the number of items we can collect. Please review our acceptable item list.
Contact us to receive an estimate or schedule a collection.
If it’s possible that some of your items, such as sofas and tables, could find a new secondary life, please consider donating to one of the many non-profit agencies in San Francisco. Not only will you be helping divert items from the landfill – you will also be helping a great organization!
