Not everything is recyclable curbside, but many things can still be recycled. Marin Sanitary Service, Marin Recycling Center, and Marin Resource Recovery Facility (MRRC) are part of a multi-faceted waste management and recycling operation located on a 103-acre land holding in east San Rafael. In additon to these three facilities owned and operated by the Garbarino family, the property is home to the Marin Household Hazardous Waste Facility which is run in partnership with the City of San Rafael and the Marin Hazardous & Solid Waste JPA.
Please see the links to the left for more information. Collection of recyclable and Compostable materials through our curbside and drop off programs at these facilities is what allows Marin County to have the exceptional recycling rate of 77 percent. This achievement has had a profound impact on the environment. Annually, MSS saves the equivalent of two million trees and 900 million gallons of water.
Marin Sanitary Service (MSS) is responsible for all curbside collection services for residential and commercial customers. In addition, it is the office for Debris Box Rentals and Confidential Document Shredding.
