Gigantic 3

Gigantic 3: Compost, recycle, and throw away your bulky items with Gigantic 3!

Gigantic 3 provides a drop-off site for large scale recycling, composting, bulky item and hazardous waste collection for San Francisco residents. The program visits a different San Francisco supervisorial district each month, allowing residents of that district to schedule a free drop-off. See your district here.

An appointment is encouraged to utilize this free service.

Please call (415) 330-1300 to schedule your appointment!

The Gigantic 3 is a partnership between Recology, the SF Department of Public Works, the SF Department of the Environment and Goodwill Industries. 

Gigantic 3 events run from 8 am to noon. Crews are on-site to help at all events. Drop off any large items (such as mattresses, yard waste, furniture, appliances, electronics, etc.). Residents only — no businesses. Please be prepared to show proof of San Francisco residency.
