MarBorg Industries owns and operates a revolutionary Construction and Demolition (C&D) Recycling and Transfer Facility located in the heart of Santa Barbara. This facility opened its doors in 2005 and is permitted to process 1,250 tons (2,500,000 lbs) of material per day. The C&D Facility had 230,000 tons of material pass through its doors in 2017. Nearly 190,000 tons of this material was processed or sorted, resulting in almost 125,000 tons of material being diverted from the landfill. This C&D facility occupies over 100,000 square feet, is open to the public as well as commercial haulers. Material that enter the facility are sorted by a combination of excavators to remove large material, shakers to remove small debris, and an elevated sort line to separate the remaining types of material. Both greenwaste and wood are recycled into mulch and woodchips onsite, using an electric grinder that can process up to 100 tons of material per hour. The facility has several built-in features that benefit the environment and the surrounding area, including ceiling misters that control dust and clear the air, a steel-plate and fiberglass housing around the grinder to minimize noise, and a tire wash to clean the tires of vehicles exiting the facility. Tours are available for large or small groups of all ages, and are available M-F, 9am-4pm, by appointment only. Safety is a primary concern at MarBorg Industries, and tours of the facility are conducted from the safety of an observation platform that overlooks the tipping floor.
