The SF Examiner recently ran a piece stating that SF Dept of the Environment would like to move to eliminating the black bin, leaving only the blue (recycling) and green (compost) bins for residences.


That day is some ways off, but in the meantime, there have been changes in what should be kept out of the black bin, and go into the blue or green bin. The list of acceptable blue-bin items in particular has got very long. New additions not everyone knows about below (and this is far from a full list, click here for that):

  • Soy-milk type containers or other box-type milks or soups, that aren’t refrigerated when you buy them (UHT/tetrapack-type). Blue bin.
  • Fabric, textiles, clothing not fit to donate — put into clear bag and into blue bin. No shoes or belts.
  • Metal — basically anything metal and not full of some substance. Blue bin.
  • Hard plastic — basically anything, including old CDs and DVDs and plastic pens! Blue bin.
  • Soft plastic — plastic bags and plastic wrap — bundle into one bag and put into blue bin. Includes bubble wrap, outside wrappers of paper towels, toilet paper, etc, and those air-bags that come with delivered boxes. And more, see link below.
  • Wood pieces — like chopsticks  and unpainted scraps. Green bin.
  • Pizza boxes — clean ones in the blue bin, greasy ones in the green bin.

See this page for full lists of what is accepted.

One Sunnyside neighbor is making a green difference on her block. Pam Parker Souza, realtor and SNA member, initiated a greening project on her block, near Detroit St and Flood Ave, with cooperation of her neighbors and the help of Friends of the Urban Forest. First the concrete comes out, then the plants go in. The big planting day is the morning of Saturday Oct 14 — stop by then to see what’s happening and show your support. More info and photos later.



The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) is warning customers to be aware of a recent telephone scam involving water bills. Over the past two days, the SFPUC has heard from several dozen customers who say they have received a call from someone impersonating a representative of “SF Utilities.”

According to the reports, the alleged representative is threatening to shut off water service unless immediate cash payment is made. Customers have been directed to make payment at Walgreen’s, CVS and Rite Aid stores in San Francisco.

These calls are not coming from the SFPUC and at no time does the agency direct customers to pay their water bills in-person anywhere outside of authorized payment locations.

The SFPUC is conducting an internal investigation and, at this time, there is no evidence that there has been a breach of private customer information.

Additionally, the SFPUC has reported the incidents to the San Francisco Police Department, the FBI and the Federal Trade Commission.

Customers who receive these calls and wish to report them directly to law enforcement should contact the Federal Trade Commission at 877-382-4357.

Customers who have questions about their water bill should call the SFPUC customer service line at 415-551-3000.
