SFCC Recycles Beverage Containers, Ewaste, Tires, and Oil


SFCC can help you to recycle

Recyclables and compostables are not allowed in the trash in San Francisco, which goes directly to a landfill. Materials in your blue bin are made into new bottles, cans, and other products. Food, soiled-paper and plants in your green bin are composted into nutrient-rich soil used by local farms.

Beverage Containers

Consumers pay California Redemption Value (CRV) when they purchase beverages from a retailer, and receive CRV refunds when they redeem the containers at a recycling center. Most beverages packaged in aluminum, glass, plastic and bi-metal containers are eligible for CRV.

Electronic Waste

Almost anything considered electronic is banned from landfills. These items include computers, monitors, peripherals, phones, TVs, VCRs, DVD players, stereos, microwave ovens, PDAs, and iPods. When they are disposed of, these types of items are called “e-waste”.

Tires

Tire recycling or rubber recycling is the process of recycling vehicles’ tires (British English tyres) that are no longer suitable for use on vehicles due to wear or irreparable damage (such as punctures). These tires are among the largest and most problematic sources of waste, due to the large volume produced, their durability, and the fact they contain a number of components that are ecologically problematic.

Oil

Used oil is a hazardous waste that should never be put in the garbage or dumped in the storm drains or ground. Even just a ¼-gallon of motor oil can contaminate 250,000 gallons of water.
