The Santa Barbara County Public Works Department has been recognized with an Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties (NACo). The awards honor innovative, effective county government programs that strengthen services for residents.
NACo recognized the Santa Barbara County ReSource Center located at the Tajiguas Landfill for its role in optimizing new technologies and other innovations to advance the County’s energy goals and environmental stewardship. This month’s chapter meeting will include a presentation and tour of the ReSource Center, which converts commercial and residential waste into resources by recovering recyclable materials, transforming organics into landscape nutrients, and creating renewable energy in the process. We are especially excited that the County is able to provide this tour after the landfill and ReSource Center experienced damage due the Alisal Fire in October 2021, but was able to quickly and successfully recover.
The center offers a unique, physical educational experience about waste reduction. With the Education Center located on the second floor, you are able to look down and around the inside of the Materials Recovery Facility through the tall windows that frame the bright green machinery and hardworking crew.
