Is that after running `git gc`?

What about `git gc --prune=now`? "disable that grace period and get
rid of those unreferenced objects right away (safe only if no other
git activities are taking place at the same time which should be easy
to ensure on a workstation)." [1]

And `git gc --aggressive`?

Which git repository is it? If there is already an existing
repository, you may be able to get by with creating a fork of that
repository, so that github/gitorious don't account the actual base
repository in your allowance (at least... in theory).
