Trash collection schedule to remain unchanged for MLK Day in 2023
Harrison Industries will maintain its regular trash, recycling and yard/organic waste collection
schedule in Ventura County during the week of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 15-21, 2023.

Remember that Harrison’s residential customers can place all three carts curbside every week, as
Harrison collects all waste weekly – including food waste, which is now recyclable. All food
waste should be placed in closed bags and the bags should be tossed in the yard waste cart.Thank you for your role in the success of food waste recycling. Food waste recycling is the law,
but more importantly, it’s vital for the environment. Food waste emits destructive methane gas as
it decays, damaging our atmosphere and causing global warming.

We continue to be a statewide leader in developing the programs and infrastructure needed to
implement this ambitious project and we wouldn’t be as successful without your participation.
Harrison Industries serves the cities and surrounding unincorporated areas of Ventura, Ojai and
Camarillo as well as the unincorporated areas of El Rio, Somis, Ojai Valley, the Channel Islands
beach communities and the city of Carpinteria as E.J. Harrison & Sons; Fillmore and

Holiday trash collection schedule to remain unchanged for the Christmas and New Years holidays

Holiday trash collection schedule to remain unchanged for the Christmas and New Years holidays

With Christmas and New Year’s Day falling on Sunday this holiday season, in the weeks before and after the holidays, trash, recyclables and organic/yard waste collection by E.J. Harrison & Sons will not be delayed.

Special holiday features offered

For two weeks after Christmas, from Monday, Dec. 26 through Saturday, Jan. 7, residents may put out extra holiday waste curbside on collection day – up to two 50-gallon bags – free of charge!

As another special holiday feature, Harrison is making it easy for customers to recycle their Christmas trees. Just remove the ornaments, hooks, lights, tinsel, bows, nails and tree stands, then cut the trees into sections no more than 4 feet long and place them in your organic/yard waste cart on your scheduled pickup day. Or, if you have NO organic/yard waste cart, place the whole Christmas tree curbside on collection day. Flocked trees also are accepted for recycling.

The recycled trees will be processed into mulch by our partner Agromin. These products benefit our farmlands, orchards, nurseries, landscape projects and home gardens, so recycling your tree truly is a holiday gift to Mother Earth! We appreciate your help and thanks also to Agromin and our local municipalities for participating in this program.

Finally, a reminder that our residential customers can place all three carts curbside every week, as Harrison collects all waste weekly – including food waste, which is now recyclable. All food waste should be placed in closed bags and the bags should be tossed in the yard waste cart.

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 www.agromin.com, where you also can order Agromin products online. Do so and you’re giving a holiday gift that keeps on giving.

Harrison’s Thursday and Friday customers will have trash collection delayed one day for Thanksgiving Holiday

Harrison’s Thursday and Friday customers will have trash collection delayed one day for Thanksgiving Holiday

In observance of Thanksgiving this year, Harrison Industries employees are taking the day off on Thursday, Nov. 24. As a result, customers who normally have their trash, recyclables and yard/organic waste
collected on Thursday or Friday will have it collected one day later than usual.

The Thanksgiving holiday will not affect customers who have their trash, recyclables and yard/organic waste collected on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. The regular schedule for all customers will resume the following week. A reminder that Harrison’s residential customers can place all three carts curbside every week, as Harrison collects all waste weekly – including food waste, which is now recyclable. All food waste should be placed in closed bags and the bags should be tossed in the yard waste cart.


Harrison Industries wishes everyone a Happy Thanksgiving and would like to thank all of our customers for your role in the success of food waste recycling, which took effect in January according to California Senate Bill 1383. Food waste recycling is the law, but more importantly, it’s vital for the environment. Food waste emits destructive methane gas as it decays, damaging our atmosphere and causing global warming. Our effort has continued to evolve and grow this year, thanks to your participation and help from our partner cities and counties, Agromin and Gold Coast Recycling.

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

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

Photo: Put your yard/organics cart out weekly with your food waste in it, even if you don’t have any yard waste that week. (Interim yard/organic waste cart color shown here.)

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.

A helpful springtime reminder to local residents and business owners: Harrison Industries can supply large roll-off dumpsters and bins for all residential and commercial projects.

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 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.
