What does SCRAP do?
SCRAP collects donations of quality, clean, reusable materials such as fabric, paper, arts and crafts supplies, wood, beads, buttons, and so much more and makes these materials available as supplies for teachers, non-profits, parents, artists, and students. SCRAP helps reduce the waste going to landfill by over 200 tons per year, and San Francisco schools and non-profits benefit by receiving badly needed art and other supplies. SCRAP provides workshops, field trips and hands-on activities at community events to promote the benefits of creative reuse.
Where is SCRAP located?
SCRAP is located in an SFUSD (San Francisco Unified School Disrict) warehouse in the Bayview district of San Francisco. Our address is 801 Toland St., but enter the warehouse on Newcomb Ave, between Toland and Selby. You can find a map and directions to us here.
When is SCRAP open?

There are always a variety of materials at the depot that can inspire your next classroom projects. We have an annual materials give-away in the fall and monthly materials give-away for teachers where a wide selection of free materials for use in the classroom are provided. Our low-cost workshops offer a range of ideas for creative reuse projects many of which can be tailored for the classroom.
