About this Spot

The Buchanan interchange is regularly cleared, so the trash here is smaller, and spread out over a wider area.

This area includes a large area under freeway overpasses, the area is criss-crossed with on and off-ramps. Use under crossings and crosswalks wherever possible.

Trash Note

Trash is residual campsite detritus and a litter, blown in from the highway.


Avoid cleaning active campsites unless you talk to the residents and get guidance from residents about what can be taken away. Potentially needles around homeless campsites.

Hazards & Safety

Before working solo around active campsites, it’s best to join an organized cleanup.

Wear neon vests when working anywhere near freeway on and off ramps.

Stay off highway and on and off-ramps.

Stay at least 12’ from traffic lanes.

Watch for speeding bicyclists along bike paths.

Getting There & Parking

On the West side of the freeway, park along Buchanan St. across from Golden Gate Fields.

On East side of the freeway park underneath the overpass. The access road to this area is across from the Toyota Service Center (which is next to Target).

Trash Disposal

For small amounts there is a trash can on the North side of Buchanan, underneath the overpass.

Large amounts Should be staged in piles where at they can easily be loaded onto a truck, and out of the the right-of-way.
