All Santa Barbara residents with trash service have access to battery recycling at home.
Single-family residents can place household batteries (tape the ends of each battery) in a plastic bag (e.g. Ziploc) on top of (not inside) their blue cart. Batteries will be picked up on the regular collection day.
In apartments or other multi-family dwellings, the landlord can request an orange bucket, free of charge, from MarBorg by calling 963-1852. These buckets can then be brought to one of the collection centers below.
