Thank You For Recycling Your Food Waste! It’s Helping!

Thank You For Recycling Your Food Waste! It’s Helping!

You rock! Since Harrison started collecting residential food waste this year, hundreds of you have begun recycling your food waste for weekly collection.

For those who have not gotten on board – PLEASE DO.

It’s so easy: Instead of throwing your food waste in the trash, drop it into plastic or paper bags, seal the bags securely and toss them into your organic/yard waste cart. REMEMBER: Yard waste should be loose in the cart, but food waste MUST BE BAGGED! (No yard waste? No problem! Put the cart out by the curb anyway, for food waste collection!)

It’s so important: Food waste that’s not recycled ends up in the landfill. When organic material, such as food and yard waste, is landfilled, it decomposes and produces methane, a potent greenhouse gas contributing to climate change. Recycled food waste becomes compost, energy, animal feed and other green products. With little effort, you can help reduce the impacts of climate change.

Harrison Earns New Contract in Carpinteria

Harrison Earns New Contract in Carpinteria

The Carpinteria City Council voted 4-0 on May 23 to approve a new Solid Waste Handling Services Franchise Agreement with E.J. Harrison & Sons, Inc.

The new 15-year contract, with the option for two 5-year extensions, will take effect July 1. Renegotiation of the existing contract, set to expire Dec. 31, was spurred by state Senate Bill 1383, which requires food waste recycling and other measures to combat climate change.

Existing programs, including community cleanups and free bulky item pickups for single-family homes, will continue under the new contract. New or expanded programs will include free bulky item pickups for multi-family residences, collection of residential and commercial organic waste, and SB 1383 compliance monitoring.

“The new contract allows the city of Carpinteria the comfort of knowing they will be in compliance with SB 1383,” said Daniel Harrison, the company’s contract compliance manager. “The contract negotiations went well because it was the ultimate team effort. We trust each other and have open communication. We are excited to service the city of Carpinteria for the next 25 years.” 

E.J. Harrison, which is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year and has served Carpinteria since 1993, earned praise from the four council members May 23 (Councilwoman Natalia Alarcon was absent). “It’s great to see you guys again, and thank you for being part of Carpinteria,” Vice Mayor Al Clark told Harrison representatives. “We really appreciate your services.”

Harrison Industries does business throughout Ventura County, as well as in Carpinteria in Santa Barbara County, as E.J. Harrison & Sons, Santa Clara Valley Disposal and Newbury Disposal.

Temporary solid-waste disposal service is available to all home and business owners in Ventura County, including throughout the Conejo Valley, as well as in adjacent areas including Agoura Hills, Westlake Village, Calabasas, Carpinteria and Malibu – whether or not we’re your regular, weekly trash collector.

The roll-off containers are invaluable for everything from household spring cleaning projects to the biggest commercial jobs, including construction sites, special events, remodeling, disaster scenes, industrial plants, office complexes, recycle projects, demolition and agriculture.

The containers can be rented in a range of sizes, with 3, 10, 25 and 40 cubic yards of space available to fit all needs.

    • 3-yard bins are approximately 6 feet 9 inches by 3 feet 6 inches and are 4 feet 3 inches tall, with a maximum weight capacity of 700 pounds. They are ideal for home, garage and yard cleanup. They come with plastic lids and wheels.
    • 10-yard bins are approximately 16 feet by 8 feet by 2 feet. They are used for the removal of concrete, dirt, asphalt, sod and other heavy materials.
    • 25-yard bins and 40-yard bins – approximately 22 by 8 by 4 feet and 22 by 8 by 6 feet, respectively – are intended for construction sites, roofing projects, land clearing, demolition, weed abatement, and residential furniture and appliances.

    The 10-, 25- and 40-yard bins all have a 10-ton capacity.

    Also:

    • We recycle construction and demolition debris.
    • We enable contractors to easily meet recycling requirements.

    Please Recycle Your Food Waste!

    Please Recycle Your Food Waste!

    As most of our customers know, Harrison is now accepting residential food waste for weekly collection and recycling. We hope everyone is taking advantage of this invaluable new service.

    Simply place all of your food waste in plastic or paper bags; securely close the bags (tie off plastic bags and tightly fold paper bags); and place them in your yard waste carts, for collection along with your (loose) yard waste on your regular service day.

    NOTE: FOOD WASTE MUST BE BAGGED, so we can separate it out for use as compost, fertilizer, animal feed and other green products.

    Food waste recycling is not just the right thing to do; it’s the law, as set forth in California Senate Bill 1383, which took effect in January as a mandate to set our state on the right path toward reversing climate change. Food waste emits destructive methane gas as it decays, damaging our atmosphere and causing global warming.

    ALL FOOD WASTE is accepted for recycling, including bones, peels, shells and coffee grounds. DO NOT place trash; non-organic recyclables (plastic, metal, glass); pet waste; or Styrofoam in yard waste carts.
