The beauty of Goleta continues to improve thanks to another year of Beautify Goleta events. In 2019 the City held six Beautify Goleta events. Beautify Goleta is the City’s community clean-up program, in partnership with MarBorg, and is designed to make it easy for residents to clean up their homes and yards. On select Saturday mornings, the City provides roll-off boxes for disposal of unwanted items (trash and yard waste/organic material) for small sections of the City. After the clean-up events, the City has additional street sweeping completed in those neighborhoods. The 2019 events were in the Lake Los Carneros and Old Town neighborhoods. The six events collected a total of 50,000 pounds worth of material, of which 75% was recycled or reused.
