Easy Battery Recycling at Home!

Tape, Bag, and Place batteries on top of your blue bin.

All Santa Barbara residents with trash service have access to battery recycling at home. 

  • TAPE the ends of the batteries
  • BAG in a clear plastic bag
  • PLACE on top of your recycling bin on collection days

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.

Batteries and electronics can always be taken to the Recycling Center (ABOP) at 132 Nopalitos Way on the east side, Monday-Saturday 9-4.
