The City of Ventura is committed to serving our community and ensuring that you are informed throughout this dynamic time. The Division of Environmental Sustainability wants to provide a local update about waste and recycling.
Our local waste hauler, EJ Harrison, confirmed that they will continue to provide normal trash and collection services for both commercial and residential customers
. After collection, materials collected in the recycling bin are sent to Gold Coast Recycling Center, where operations are continuing. The only significant change at the Gold Coast Recycling Center is that the Buy-Back Center at the Colt Street facility in Ventura has been closed until further notice, to protect the safety of customers and employees. This change has no effect on the commercial or residential curbside collection programs, and everyone is encouraged to keep recycling. Materials collected in the yard waste bin are sent to Agromin, where facilities are still open and no changes are expected to affect their normal operations. It is important to note that EJ Harrison, Gold Coast Recycling, and Agromin will all be closely following the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and all relevant federal, state and local agencies to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
