New Cuyama Transfer Station
The New Cuyama Transfer Station is located at 5073 Highway 166 in New Cuyama, California. The site is a 0.9 acre site within the community of New Cuyama that had previously been used as a road yard by the Transportation Division. This facility can process up to 99 cubic yards of trash during each day that it is open. Most materials dropped off at the New Cuyama Transfer Station are processed by MarBorg Industries at its Materials Recovery Facility in Santa Barbara. Workers sort through the loads to recover recyclables, such as cardboard, scrap metal, untreated wood, cans, bottles, and even mattresses. An estimated 50 percent of the waste generated at New Cuyama is recovered and recycled through these efforts.
In addition, this facility accepts old electronics and appliances, which are temporarily stored on-site and then transported to the County's South Coast Recycling & Transfer Station for consolidation and shipment to a certified recycler. Examples of electronics accepted include: desktop and laptop computers, monitors, printers, televisions, copiers, scanners, fax machines, VCRs, DVD/CD players, small appliances (e.g. vacuums, hair dryers, shavers), DVDs and CDs, audio and video cassettes, vinyl records, cell phones, MP3 players, and video game systems.
The Transfer Station is open on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays from 12:00 noon until 6:00 p.m. during Pacific Daylight Savings Time (the second weekend in March to the first weekend in November) and from 11:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. during Pacific Standard Time (from the first weekend in November to the first weekend in March). The facility is closed on New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. There are no tipping fees at this facility, which accommodates local residents only. If you have any questions, please call (805) 681-4345.
