Garbage, RecyclingAn Important Reminder for South San Francisco Residents On Your Collection Day

Wheel your carts out to the street on your regularly scheduled garbage and recycling day. Place recycling and garbage carts out together 2-feet apart and 3-feet away from any vehicle or obstacle. Put your carts wheels against the curb with the handles facing your house. If there is a problem putting your carts in the street, please put your carts as close as possible to the street, for example, in your driveway, on the mow strip, or at the edge of the sidewalk. No hazardous materials of any kind are accepted in your garbage, recycling or yard waste carts.
