The Santa Maria City Council rejected a permit for a recycling center outside of Foods Co. during its regular meeting on Tuesday, leaving Santa Maria without a buy-back facility within city limits.

The City Council voted unanimously to deny a conditional use permit for Sunset Recycling, a facility proposed for the Foods Co. parking lot where customers could return plastic and glass bottles and cans at market California refund value. 

The small unit would take up roughly seven parking spots on the northern end of the lot, with a small entrance and processing area. The majority of the space for the facility would be made up of storage containers that could be trucked away from the site.
