ABOP Recycling Facility at City Hall

ABOP is an acronym for Anti-freeze, Batteries, Oil, and Paint (latex only), used to describe materials that are collected, at no charge, for recycling throughout the year. Carpinteria City residents can bring in the following materials for recycling:

  • Anti-freeze
  • Batteries
  • Motor oil and oil filters
  • Water and oil based paints - For a list of accepted materials visit paintcare.org.

The ABOP collection facility is located at City Hall, 5775 Carpinteria Avenue, and is open every second and forth Saturday of the month from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The only exception is in November and December when the facility is open only the second Saturday of each month. In addition, used oil, oil filters and anti-freeze can be brought to the same City Hall location, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  Please note, there is a 5 gallon maximum per household per month for liquids.

Please remember, when disposing of light bulbs ... regular incandescent light bulbs can be thrown in the trash can (not the recycling container); however mercury vapor, fluorescent and other gas filled tubes cannot go in the trash or recycle cans.
