Agromin, the green waste recycler for most of Ventura County, is accepting Christmas trees at three of its locations now through January 19. Residents who drop off their trees will receive a free bag of potting mix.
Drop off locations are:
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., Sim 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. They must first be cut up so that limbs and branches fit into the green recycling barrel.
Agromin estimates it will recycle over 100,000 whole and cut Christmas trees after the holidays. The trees will be cleaned, chopped and then composted over a 30-day period. The resulting mulch and soil amendments will then be used by growers, landscapers and consumers.
