Report Recycling Theft

City and State law prohibit the theft of any recyclable materials. Recology Sunset Scavenger and Recology Golden Gate are the only collection companies authorized by the City of San Francisco to collect recycling from recycling carts or bins. If you see someone other than an employee of either company removing recyclables from a recycling cart or bin, obtain the vehicle license number, vehicle description, time and address of the theft, description of the person(s), and fill out our online Recycle Theft Form below, or call (415) 330-1300 during normal business hours.

For your safety, do NOT confront the recycling thieves.

Thank you for doing your part to help San Francisco meet its mandated 75% recycling goal.
