Santa Barbara Recycling 101
Residents of Santa Barbara enjoy a great set of modern waste services provided by the City under contract with our local waste hauler, MarBorg. An overview:
- All homes must have trash service;
- Lots of blue bin recycling is included with your service at no extra charge;
- Plenty of greenwaste (leaves, branches, grass) collection is also included;
- We are just beginning foodscraps composting for larger multi-unit apartment buildings;
- Plus battery collection, bulky waste pickups, mail-in medical sharps and Christmas tree collection.
You have a choice of container types and sizes, and for large residential services, the number of days of pickup.
