The Tubac Transfer Station is open again (September 24, 2021) but the materials that can be accepted for recycling are very limited. They are listed in this file, "Recycling Information," provided by the County. In summary, only flattened corrugated cardboard, tin and aluminum cans, and plastics #1 and #2 can be recycled. This is a pilot program. Recycling nationwide has become difficult in recent years and baby steps are all that can be done for the moment. It is important that this work so we can try to expand what can be recycled in the future. Very importantly, the material taken to be recycled must be clean and dry. If it's contaminated (like a take out pizza box), it will end up in the landfill and threaten the success of the pilot program. Also, if materials are left that are not currently recyclable, they will end up in the landfill and threaten the success of this effort.
Please call Santa Cruz County at (520) 761-7892 if you have questions.
For hours of operation check: Tubac Transfer Station Current hours are: Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from 8 am to 4 pm; closed for lunch 12 pm to 1 pm.
