Free Hazardous Waste Drop-off October 1 & 2

Collection at Cuyama

 If you’re tired of seeing those old paint cans in the garage or that old jug of used motor oil in the back shed, bring them to an upcoming household hazardous waste collection event.  The Santa Barbara County Public Works Department is holding two events in early October – on Saturday, October 1 in New Cuyama and on Sunday, October 2 in the Santa Ynez Valley.

The Cuyama event will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., October 1, at the New Cuyama Recycling and Transfer Station, 5073 Highway 166.  Residents can drop off common household items, including automotive fluids, cleaners, paint, pesticides, and batteries, as well as unwanted electronics like computers and TVs.  You can even recycle your old CDs, DVDs, and video and cassette tapes.  Participation is free for Santa Barbara County residents. Additional details are available on the event page for the Cuyama collection.

The Santa Ynez event will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., October 2, at the Santa Ynez Valley Recycling and Transfer Station, 4004 Foxen Canyon Road in Los Olivos.  The County will accept the same types of items as the Cuyama event, and participation is free for residents in the unincorporated area and the City of Solvang. Find more information on the Santa Ynez event page.
