Directions to the ReSource Center

This new state-of-the-art waste management facility will increase our community's recycling rate to above 85%, generate resources, such as green energy and compost, and dramatically lower local greenhouse gas emissions.

The ReSource Center is located in off of Highway 101 in a rural area, so Google Maps or other GPS navigation systems don't work as well there. The best way to find the ReSource Center is to paste these coordinates into your device: 34.473291, -120.129093.

The ReSource Center is 26 miles from the Santa Barbara City center on the Gaviota Coast. Coming from Santa Barbara, get on the 101 North. Once you get to Refugio State Beach, you have 4 miles to go. You will see a deceleration lane to the right and a lone palm tree where you will exit. There is no exit sign. Drive forward into the entrance. Do not drive into the scale house. You will be driving about a half mile up a paved road following signs to the "ReSource Center Visitors - MRF Parking Lot". Your tour guide will meet you outside the ReSouce Center MRF entrance in the parking lot at your tour start time.
