For all our Santa Ynez Valley neighbors: On Sunday, April 1, 2012 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. the County will collect all types of common household hazardous waste and electronics.  Stop by the Santa Ynez Valley Recycling and Transfer Station with items like:

  • Automotive Fluids (motor oil, oil filters, antifreeze, brake fluid, gasoline, etc.)
  • Batteries (small household types as well as automotive)
  • Cleaners
  • Fertilizer
  • Fluorescent Lights (tubes and bulbs)
  • Medications (non-controlled substances only)
  • Needles and other Home-Generated "Sharps" (must be delivered in rigid, puncture-proof containers)
  • Paint (latex and oil-based)
  • Pesticides
  • Propane Tanks (small bbq type)
  • Solvent and Thinner
  • Electronics (computers, TVs, stereos, CD/DVD players, cell phones, printers, fax machines, scanners, copiers, cables, cameras, video game systems, etc.)
  • And More!

Bring up to 15 gallons or 125 pounds of waste per trip.  Keep in mind that no trash or green waste will be accepted.  No large appliances either.  And leave your biological, explosive, and radioactive materials at home.

This special event is available to residents in the unincorporated area of Santa Barbara County (e.g. Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Los Alamos, Ballard) and the City of Solvang.  Sorry, no Buellton residents. (Those living in Buellton should call the City of Buellton at 688-5177 for details about upcoming events in the City.)

Feel free to call the County's Public Works Department at (805) 882-3615 for more info.
