SCRAP collects materials that would otherwise go to landfill. We make a huge variety of materials available at no or very low cost at our 5,000 square foot depot in the Bayview district of San Francisco. Our inventory changes too often to list on our website, but you can get a sense of what we have here and here.

We support teachers, artists, the environment and workforce development projects.

SCRAP’s hours of operation:

  • For Shopping: Monday through Friday: 10 AM to 6 PM. Saturday: 10 AM to 5 PM.
  • For Donations: Tuesday through Saturday: 10 AM to 4 PM.

Your material and monetary donations help us to provide free programs to schools and throughout the community. Please click the button below to donate.

When you #StartWithaSmile at smile.amazon.com/ch/94-2566798, Amazon donates to SCRAP, at no cost to you.

We are located on Newcomb Street between Toland and Selby. Our address: 801 Toland St. SF, CA 94124. Click here for a map.

    I work for an architect firm and we have a lot of sample materials like: wood, carpeting, porciline, glass, tile, and anything you can think of that goes into building a a house. Nothing is damaged or used but we have several samples. Would you be able to use any of it?

    We are parent volunteers of the PTA at our public elementary school working on a very large mural project to be painted on a school wall the 1st 2 weeks in August. We are looking for paint and supplies for this project (external masonry acrilic paint, brushes, etc). Do you have these items available?

    Sorry Eva, we don’t have any of those price guns. I son’t know where you will find them, but would expect a retail fixtures store to carry them.

    Good luck. Thanks for thinking of SCRAP.

    Our company has some great materials available due to us do a repackage of our product. We have approximately 1200 of a hinge plastic box with a clear lid and black bottom. They measure 5″ x 2 1/2″ x 1″ They have label on them but they peel off quite easy I’m sure someone with a creative mind could find a great project for these.

    The other item we have are these great boxes that were used to ship the product case above. These are a Small kraft, tab locking boxes., 6 ¼ ” x 4 ⅛” x 3 ¼” fully assembled. Most of these boxes are currently assembled and packed 24 boxes per case. The boxes have 2 inserts: one is a bumper of sorts and one of them is an “accessory” box that measures 5” x 2 ½” x 1 ¼”. We have approximately 1300 of theses fully assembled and maybe 400-500 still flat.
    I sent this same message along with photos to the contact e-mail address for you guys but did not hear back, so trying this avenue to find out… Also because of the volume, it would take me at least 4 trips to drop off, hopefully that would be ok, if these are items you can accept.
    Thank you!

    Thanks for thinking of SCRAP. We regret that we are unable to accept magazines other than National Geographics. We simply have no room for them. Perhaps your local library would like to have these.

    Thanks for thinking of SCRAP. Unfortunately, we are overloaded with hanging folders. Your local school may be able to use them. If not, they recycle well.

    Donation questions… I have whole clay, ceramic and plastic pots for plants.
    Also, older gardening tools, some rusty.

    I am a retired children’s librarian and have books for primary teachers. Some books are teacher resources, i.e. Stories for storytelling, story times, finger plays, etc. things we had on the “teacher’s shelf” at the library.

    Thank you.
