History or Marborg Industries

MarBorg Industries is a local, family-owned business which has been serving Santa Barbara County for over 75 years. The business was started by Mario Borgatello Sr. and Charlie Borgatello in the late 1920’s. Recycling has been at the heart of MarBorg since the beginning when Mario and Charlie Borgatello would supply used metal, cotton, nylon, glass and other materials to meet the demand for low-cost goods created by the 1930’s depression and the 1940’s war mobilization. They would sort through the trash they collected to recover any item that could be reused. These resourceful practices became the foundation for today’s recycling efforts at MarBorg Industries.

Today, Mario Sr. has passed the operations of the business to his two sons, Mario Borgatello Jr. and David Borgatello, who serve as the Company’s President and Vice President, respectively. In addition, Mario Jr.’s two sons Anthony and Brian Borgatello manage the Liquid Waste and Recycling Divisions respectively, and Mario’s son-in-law Derek Carlson serves as the Company’s Business Manager. David’s daughter Kathy Koeper serves as Executive Assistant to the President and Vice-President. Although the business has grown since the 1920’s it still maintains a comfortable atmosphere and pride of service that are only found in a family business.
