Agromin, the green waste recycler for most of Ventura County, is accepting Christmas trees at three of its locations from December 26 through January 19. Residents who drop off their trees will receive a free bag of potting mix.
Drop off locations are:
Agromin Organics – 6859 Arnold Rd., Oxnard (Hours: Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Saturday, 7:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.)
Agromin/Simi Valley Landfill – 2801 Madera Rd., Simi Valley (Hours: Monday – Saturday, 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.)
Agromin Corporate Office – 201 Kinetic Dr. Oxnard (Hours: Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.)
Residents must remove all tinsel, lighting and other decorations before drop off. Flocked and unflocked trees are accepted.
Christmas trees can also be disposed of at curbside. Tree limbs and branches must fit into the green recycling barrel.
Agromin estimates it will recycle over 100,000 whole and cut Christmas trees after the holidays. The trees are cleaned, chopped and then composted over a 30-day period. Growers, landscapers and consumers will then use the resulting mulch and soil amendments.
