Isla Vista Move Out 2021

Isla Vista MOVE OUT DATES: June 9 to June 25, 2021 


Make a Plan - Don't Contribute to Waste & Climate Change: 

  • During Move Out 2020, 702,000 pounds of material were collected from Isla Vista streets, down from 1.2 million pounds from 2019, and over 1,100 mattresses were diverted for recycling.
  • Since 2000 the combined amount of material Marborg Industries has removed off the streets of Isla Vista through the Move Out program totals 20,282,000 pounds.
  • Please Plan Accordingly! If property owners or management companies discover abandoned belongings after the official Move Out concludes on at 12 noon on June 25th, 2021, they will need to arrange for, and cover the costs of, the removal of that material. Bulky item pick-ups by Marborg that occur in Isla Vista every Wednesday are for single items ONLY, and may NOT be used to dispose of multiple items as a result of tenants abandoning their belongings. Please plan accordingly!!
