Community Events & Workshops

Welcome to Marin Sanitary Service’s Community Events page. We are dedicated to fostering environmental awareness and sustainability within our community through engaging and educational events. Explore our calendar of upcoming events and join us in our mission to create a cleaner and greener Marin County.

We welcome our community to tour our San Rafael facility or participate in one of our public events like our annual Customer Appreciation Day. 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.

Customer Appreciation Day
Sunday September 29, 2024

At this annual fall event we celebrate our customers and open our facility for tours, workshops, giveaways, and free compost.

Mark your calendars for our 2024 Customer Appreciation Day: Sunday, September 29, 2024.

More details coming soon!


Our Community Tours are 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.

Our next Community Tour Dates will be announced here. Check back soon.
