The Tajiguas Landfill (Landfill) is a County-owned and operated facility, located at 14470 Calle Real in Santa Barbara, California.

Tajiguas Landfill is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.  It is closed on Sundays, New Years Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.  When one of these holidays falls on a weekday, please call ahead to determine whether or not the Landfill will be open on another day.  No public dumping is allowed at the Tajiguas Landfill so all South County self-hauled waste must be taken to the South Coast Recycling and Transfer Station.
