We're making it easy to get rid of all the extra stuff left after meals are eaten, presents are open, and trees are decorated.
From December 26th to January 6th, MarBorg will be collecting extra items from all City residential customers at no extra charge.
Customers can put out up to 95 gallons of extra trash (brown bin), recyclables (blue bin) or greenwaste (green bin). Just leave bags or bundles out at your normal pickup location, no bulky waste allowed. If there is excessive amounts of extra waste, please call MarBorg at 805-963-1852 so they can accommodate the special pickup.
Modified Holiday Schedule
The City of Santa Barbara and MarBorg are closed on Christmas (Dec. 25) and New Year's Day (Jan 1). Waste collection will be delayed by one day after these holidays.
Residential and Commercial pickups on Dec. 25th & Jan. 1st will be delayed by one day.
Pickups December 28th, 29th, 30th, and 31st are on a normal pickup schedule.

Call MarBorg with questions, 805-963-1852.
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.
