Recycle Your Christmas Tree

Recycle Your Christmas Tree

E.J. Harrison & Sons, Newbury Disposal and Santa Clara Valley Disposal ask “Why not turn your Christmas tree into a gift to Mother Earth by recycling it?”

After Christmas, from Dec. 26 to Jan, 7, just do this:

  • Remove all ornaments, hooks, lights, tinsel, nails and stands
  • Cut into 4-foot sections and place in Organics/Yard Waste Cart on your scheduled pick-up day
  • If you have NO Organics/Yard Waste Cart place the whole Christmas tree curbside on your collection day
  • Flocked Trees also are accepted for recycling.

Apartment and condo dwellers, please contact your management to make sure they have arranged for Christmas tree collection.

Trees that are collected will be processed into various sizes of mulch by Agromin. The material is used to make several products that benefit our farmlands, orchards, nurseries, landscape projects and home gardens.

You can buy a wide array of Agromin soil amendments at a number of businesses in Ventura County. For locations, visit, where you also can order Agromin products online. Do so and you’re giving a holiday gift that keeps on giving.

Harrison Keeps it Green: Climate Registry

Harrison Keeps it Green: Climate Registry

We’re still leading the ecological charge, achieving well beyond carbon neutrality in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. According to the latest Climate Registry and Avoided Emissions Reporting, Harrison Industries has fully offset its direct GHG emissions surpassing net zero in emissions by 21 times.

“As you can imagine, any company just trying to get to net zero is hard,” said Bill Camarillo, CEO of Harrison partner Agromin, “but the Harrisons have been able to average, over 10 years, 21 times greater than net zero, which is a tremendous accomplishment.”

It’s a remarkable number but not unexpected. We have a well tracked history of avoided emissions – including a fleet of trucks that run entirely on clean fuel – and following all of the protocol. We see this as our greatest responsibility and our greatest success as a trash/recycle company.

We at Harrison are very proud of our annual high ranking on the prestigious Climate Registry, which monitors greenhouse gas emissions. 

Harrison joined The Climate Registry in 2008 – just after the registry was formed – and it’s met its goal of remaining far ahead of the clean-air curve every year. The Climate Registry is a nonprofit organization designed and created in 2007 to manage and reduce businesses’ greenhouse gas emissions. Governed by U.S. states and Canadian provinces and territories, the registry operates GHG reporting programs globally and assists organizations in measuring, reporting and verifying the carbon in their operations in order to manage and reduce it.
