In observance of the Labor Day holiday, employees of Harrison Industries will be taking the day off on Monday, Sept. 6. As a result, Harrison will collect trash, recycling and green waste one day later than usual during the week of Sept. 5-11.
The regular schedule will resume the following week.
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 and Channel Islands beach communities as E.J. Harrison and Sons; Fillmore and surrounding unincorporated areas as Santa Clara Valley Disposal; and Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park and surrounding unincorporated areas as Newbury Disposal.
We owe the highest of praise to our remarkable partner Gold Coast Recycling. Through some of the toughest times in its 30-plus years in business, the Ventura recycling company has stood strong and robust.
Over the past several years of a global downturn in the recycling market, led by China no longer accepting our goods, Gold Coast has powered through, finding new markets regionally and around the world for all the recyclable goods you put in your carts. And over the past year since the pandemic hit, the facility is one of the few places that’s remained open every day, taking every safety precaution for its employees and the public.
Thank you for your support. Keep on doing what you’re doing: Keep your recyclables clean and loose in your carts. And most importantly, don’t stop recycling!
