• Agromin Soil Products Now in Thousand Oaks Stores - Saturday, April 12, 2008 at
  • December 27, 2007--Materials collected each week from the green waste bins of Thousand Oaks residents are turned into soil products and mulches that are now available at two Thousand Oaks outlets.

    Planting mix, potting soil and other soil amendments are produced by Thousand Oaks' green waste recycler, Agromin, and are available at Carlson Building Materials (1432 Thousand Oaks Blvd., Thousand Oaks) and John Deere Landscapes (31240 La Baya Dr., Westlake Village). Agromin, based in Camarillo, is the second largest green waste recycler in California.

    "Residents help with the green recycling process by putting green materials in the recycling bins and again by using the soil products produced from the cleaned and composted lawn clippings, leaves and wood," says Bill Camarillo Agromin CFO. "It's a unique way to reuse local green materials that would otherwise wind up in our landfills."
