• Santa Paula & Fillmore Recycled Green Materials Now Available As Soil Products - Thursday, October 16, 2008 at
  • Materials collected each week from the green waste bins of Santa Paula and Fillmore residents are turned into soil products and mulches that are now available at four area outlets.

    Planting mix, potting soil and other soil amendments are produced by Santa Paula and Fillmore's green waste recycler, Agromin. They are available at AG Rx (186 Telegraph Rd., Fillmore), Fillmore Rentals (215 Palm St., Fillmore), Fruit Growers Supply Company (980 W. Telegraph Rd., Santa Paula) and Heritage Do It Best Hardware (568 W. Main St., Santa Paula).

    Agromin, based in Camarillo, is the second largest green waste recycler in California. It processes more than 250,000 tons of green waste every year from cities throughout Southern California. One of Agromin's green materials recycling facilities is on five acres of Limoneira Company land in Santa Paula.

    "Residents help with the green recycling process by putting green materials in their recycling bins each week 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 end up in our landfills."
