We're making it easy to get rid of all the extra stuff left after the big parties are thrown, 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 accomodate the special pickup.

Modified Holiday Schedule 

Our city trash hauler, MarBorg is closed on Christmas (Dec. 25th) and New Year's Day (Jan 1st). Residential waste collections will be delayed by one day for customers during these two weeks.

What that means:

  • If you're normally picked up on Monday, your pickup day will be Tuesday. If normally picked up Tuesday, your pickup day will be Wednesday, and so on.

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.
