Marin Sanitary Community Events

Community Events, Tours & Workshops


We welcome our community to tour our San Rafael facility or participate in one of our public events. Here you’ll learn about sustainability through reducing, reusing, recycling, and composting garbage, conserving our resources, and making better purchasing choices! Our tours and events offer a unique learning experience for children and adults alike.

COMMUNITY TOURS

Marin Kitchen Compost Pail
Our Community Tours are regularly-scheduled, weekend events and consist of our normal facility tour with one special addition: a Green Can Composting Workshop.

At this Green Cart Composting Workshop, immediately following your tour we will talk about which materials belong in your green compost cart, why it’s important to use this cart, as well as address any questions or concerns that you might have.

Marin Sanitary Service customers who attend this workshop (in addition to the tour) will be eligible to receive one free kitchen compost pail per household.

CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY POSTPONED

With the latest recommendations from Marin County officials and Governor Newsom to cancel or postpone large scale events due to the COVID-19 virus, we are postponing our annual Customer Appreciation Day event typically held in April. The health of our employees, customers and community is paramount.

WE WILL ANNOUNCE THE NEW CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DATE ON OUR WEBSITE AND SOCIAL MEDIA AS SOON AS WE CAN.
