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, while apartment dwellers receive one no-charge curbside collection. If you exceed your number of free pickups, you may request additional Recology collections for a fee. Once you’ve scheduled your pickup, please place your items next to the curb near your residence, 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
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!
