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.

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.

    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.

    Food Waste Recycling Starts in the New Year!

    Starting Jan. 3, food waste recycling services begin for all residents of cities served by Harrison Industries. (Residents in unincorporated areas will begin in mid 2022.)

    and causing global warming.

    EJ Harrison & Sons, Inc. Celebrates 90 Years in Business!

    EJ Harrison & Sons, Inc. Celebrates 90 Years in Business!

    VENTURA, California (Dec. 6, 2021) – Harrison Industries is celebrating a remarkable 90 years in business by ushering in a new era in recycling.

    Founded in 1932, the local trash and recycling hauler and processor will take recycling to the next level in 2022, when it introduces weekly residential food waste recycling as well as a program to ramp up the commercial recycling of food and other organic waste.

    Harrison officially kicked off its 90th anniversary on Friday, at the Ventura Chamber of Commerce’s monthly Connection Breakfast, which Harrison hosted at Four Points Sheraton at Ventura Harbor. With 10 members of the Harrison team in attendance, the company used the opportunity to share news and literature about the big changes ahead.

    “Food waste recycling is coming, and soon,” said Harrison’s Nan Drake, who addressed the more than 100 local businesspeople at the event. “It’s great news for the Earth, and it’s a great time for us all to become better recyclers.”

    Harrison was well received at the event, with many attendees lavishing praise on the company that’s been a solid fixture in the community. “I can’t believe Harrison is turning 90,” said Ashley Pope, membership development manager for the Ventura Chamber. “I grew up in Ventura, so I’ve never known a time without those green trucks – and those awesome, incredible drivers. I have literally never seen an unsafe truck or an unreliable driver. … Here’s to another 90 years!”

    Harrison unveiled a new two-minute video at the event; created to honor its milestone anniversary, the video noted Harrison’s deep roots and philanthropy in the community but also looked ahead, to a consequential year that will affect all of its 90,000 customers in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, as residential customers are asked to start bagging their food waste and placing it in their yard waste carts for weekly curbside pickup.

    The food waste recycling program complies with California Senate Bill 1383. A highly ambitious measure, SB 1383 aims to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions by greatly decreasing the landfilled organic waste that generates it. According to the bill, organic waste in 2025 must be cut to 75% of 2014 levels.

    To accommodate the new law, Harrison has spent years working with its community partners Gold Coast Recycling and Agromin to build world-class facilities in Ventura County to process and reuse the food and other organic waste. “As we’ve always been, for 90 years now, we’re ready for what’s next,” Drake said at the Chamber event.

    The Harrison team wrapped up the event with anniversary cake and a special gift to everyone in attendance: bags of organic potting soil from Agromin, delivered by company CEO Bill Camarillo.

    Watch For New Color-Coded Trash, Recycling Carts

    Watch For New Color-Coded Trash, Recycling Carts

    E.J. Harrison & Sons will begin delivering new trash and recycling carts that will comply with California’s Senate Bill 1383, which creates a statewide uniform color system for all carts, bins and roll-offs. The new containers will slowly roll out across the state in the coming years.

    Meanwhile, residents will continue to use their green, blue and tan carts.

    Here are the color changes coming, based on SB 1383 rules:
    • New black carts will replace green trash carts.
    • The blue recycle carts will remain blue.
    • New green carts will replace the tan/brown carts that are used for yard/green waste.

    While the state requires all carts to be replaced by 2036, Harrison expects to completely phase in the new carts within a few years

    The state deadline for carts to begin to be replaced is Jan. 1, 2022.

    The next generation of 32-, 64- and 96-gallon fully automated carts are slightly shorter than the ones they will replace, but they are wider and heavier, which should make them more stable during wind events.
    New carts will be delivered to customers along with how-to flyers explaining exactly what to do with each cart.

    For more information, call Harrison at 805-647-1414.
