Agromin, a soil products manufacturer and the green waste recycler for much of Ventura County, is accepting Christmas trees at its locations in Oxnard from December 26 through January 7. Residents who drop off their trees will receive a free bag of potting mix.
Drop off locations and hours are:
Agromin Composting Facility – 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 Corporate Office – 201 Kinetic Dr. Oxnard (Hours: Monday – Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 4:30 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 at curbside. Tree limbs and branches must fit into the green waste recycling barrel.
Once trees arrive at Agromin’s composting facility, any remaining decorations are removed. The trees are chopped and then composted over a 60-to-90-day period. The resulting mulch and soil amendments are used by growers, landscapers and consumers.
