Bulky Items

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)

Batteries

Residential customers (buildings with 5 units or less) receive two curbside Bulky Item Recycling collections per year at no additional charge, and each unit in a multi-family building (6 units or more) 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 RECOLOGY.

You may leave up to 10 items per collection appointment. Please view the full list of accepted items. 


Donate

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!
