All residential trash customers in the City of Santa Barbara are eligible for 2 free bulky item clean ups every calendar year. In multi-unit apartment buildings, the landlord or property manager must make the request.
Customers simply call MarBorg at 963-1852 to schedule. You may call at any time of year that is convenient to you. MarBorg picks up all bulky waste on Wednesdays and electronic waste on Thursdays. Items should not be placed at the collection point until that day.
Bulky waste includes, but is definitely not limited to:
Unlimited Appliances ("White Goods")
Separate from bulky item pickups, Santa Barbara residents are entitled to unlimited collection of major appliances, also known as "white goods." These include items such as stovetop ranges, refrigerators, washers and dryers, small air conditioning units, and water heater tanks. Call MarBorg at 963-1852 for an appointment, but wait until your assigned pickup day to place items out for collection.
Construction and Demolition
Note: Construction and Demolition ("C&D") debris is not included in these pickups. C&D includes brick, concrete, and dimensional lumber from a remodel, repair, demolition, or new construction. These materials must go to the MarBorg C&D facility at 119 N. Quarantina St., open Monday-Saturday. Call 963-1853 for more info.
