Waste Management Health Sanitation Service’s curbside residential trash and recycling pick-up schedule in Santa Barbara County will be delayed by one day beginning Thursday, July 4 and through the remainder of the week in observance of Independence Day.
This means customers in the following cities/unincorporated county areas who receive service on Thursdays and Fridays should place their carts out for pick-up one day later than usual this week:
• Unincorporated Northern Santa Barbara County
• City of Solvang
• City of Guadalupe
All local Waste Management operations will be closed on Thursday, July 4, with normal operations resuming on Friday, July 5.
With Fourth of July party planning underway, Waste Management would like to share a few eco-friendly party tips to go red, white, and green this Independence Day:
1. Become independent of disposable plates, cups and utensils and bring reusable party ware. This is not only good for the environment, but also saves money in the long run.
2. Set up a specially marked recycling container to collect aluminum cans and plastic bottles so that they don’t end up in the trash.
3. Try petroleum-free charcoal starter, which is available purchase at many household discount and hardware stories.
4. Use aluminum foil instead of plastic wrap to cover and store food. Clean foil can be cleaned and reused, or crumpled up and tossed into the recycling cart, making it the better option.
Customer service is available at 805-922-2121.
