ReSource Center: Investing in the Future of Environmental Stewardship Santa Barbara County continues to expand its legacy of environmental leadership with the ReSource Center, a new cutting-edge facility that is fundamentally redefining waste recovery.
The ReSource Center converts commercial and residential waste into resources by recovering recyclable materials, transforming organics into landscape nutrients, and creating renewable energy in the process.
With this new technology, approximately 60% of additional waste from our trash cans is diverted from the landfill bringing our region’s diversion rate above 85% while significantly reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The County of Santa Barbara and select cities made the bold decision to modestly increase rates for the purpose of investing in a cleaner future for our county. As our region continues to grow, the ReSource Center is an opportunity to prepare the next generation for responsible waste management and a healthier environment.
