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

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.
