The Mandatory Recycling and Composting Ordinance requires all San Franciscans to properly separate recyclables, compostables, and landfill trash. Failure to comply may result in liens, fines, and other fees.
Homeowners: For curbside recycling and composting services, contact Recology at (415) 330-1300. Special rate and service are available for elderly and/or disabled residents.
Renters: Renters are entitled to composting and recycling services at their property. If your building does not have recycling or composting service, call SF Environment at 415-355-3700 or fill out an anonymous report form. SF Environment will contact your property manager to help set up recycling and composting.
