Holiday Extra Waste & Christmas Tree Collection

We're making it easy to get rid of all the extra stuff left after the big parties are thrown, meals are eaten, presents are open, and trees are decorated.

From December 26th to January 9th, MarBorg will be collecting extra items from all City residential customers at no extra charge.

You can leave us extra trash (brown bin), recyclables (blue bin) or greenwaste (green bin). Just leave bags or bundles out at your normal pickup location. If there is excessive amounts of extra waste, please call MarBorg at 805-963-1852 so they can accomodate the special pickup.

Christmas Tree Pickup

We will also take your Christmas trees! You don't need to cut them down unless they are taller than 6 feet. Simply:

  • Strip the tree of ornaments, garlands, and tinsel. We do not take flocked trees (unless you can remove the flocking).

  • Remove the tree stand.

  • Set the whole tree out with your waste. 

Modified schedule and extra waste, including trees

Our city trash hauler, MarBorg is closed on Christmas Day (Dec. 25) and New Year's Day (Jan 1).

Residential waste collections will be delayed by one day for customers whose normal pickup is on Friday.

What that means:

  • If you're normally picked up Fridays, your pickup days will be Saturday, Dec. 26 & Saturday, Jan. 2

Commercial pickups for businesses normally serviced on a Wednesday be provided either the day before or day after the holiday. Call MarBorg with questions, 805-963-1852.
