Residential waste collections will be delayed by one day for customers the week after Christmas (Dec. 25th) and the week after New Year’s Day (Jan. 1st) as MarBorg will be closed both of those holidays.

What that means: If your normal pickup is on Monday, your pickup day will be Tuesday. If normally picked up Tuesday, your pickup day will be Wednesday, and so on.

Please call MarBorg at 805-963-1852 with any questions about your account and/or specific collection day.

Extra Waste Collection

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, recyclables, or green waste. 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.

Christmas Tree Pickup

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


  • Strip the tree of ornaments, garland, 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.
