SERVICES IN THE
CITY OF OJAI

E.J. Harrison & Sons is proud to have provided decades of service to our partner communities. Founded in 1932, we will soon celebrate our 90th anniversary in business.

In service to our residential and commercial customers, Harrison is responsible for the collection and processing of trash and recyclable materials, plus additional services including bulky item pickup and household hazardous waste recycling.

Every service we provide and every decision we make is based on what will best serve the environment and the community and divert materials from the landfill, particularly organic materials, which emit methane gas, a super-pollutant that contributes to climate change.

As award-winning stewards of the environment, Harrison is committed to nothing more than keeping our land, air and water clean and thriving.
