Manure Recycling

Improper disposal of horse manure poses a threat to the environment. Recycling manure cannot only protect the local environment but can also save you money. 

Spreading horse manure can contribute to harmful urban run-off that contains bacteria and nutrients that pollute our local groundwater. Throwing it away in the trash takes up valuable landfill space and wastes natural resources. Santa Clarita residents can now recycle their manure for free! 

Residential customers have the option of adding an unlimited amount of 64-gallon carts for greenwaste and/or manure at no additional charge. A commercial sized bin specifically for manure recycling is also available at the same cost of a commercial sized bin for trash. 

Residents also have the option of recycling smaller amounts of horse manure in their green-waste carts for free. Waste Management will provide unlimited free greenwaste carts for manure upon request. 

This program is only for horse manure, dog waste or other types of animal waste should be placed in your blue trash cart. Recycling horse manure is an easy and cost effective way to protect water quality and keep both horses and people healthy and happy. 

Waste Management Representatives are available to assist residents in determining the appropriate level of service to maximize recycling and minimize disposal costs. For more information, or to set up a program, please contact WM Customer Service at (661) 259-2398.
