Agromin, a manufacturer of premium soil products and the green materials recycler for Thousand Oaks and other Ventura County communities, will accept residential yard trimmings (i.e., leaves, grass clippings, tree trimmings) from Thousand Oaks residents during Community Clean-Up and Recycling Day, Saturday, May 16. The location for the event is Conejo Creek Park South (23 Freeway at Janss Road exit). Hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Agromin will operate an onsite grinder that will process large branches and other green waste. The resulting material will be trucked to one of Agromin's Ventura County processing sites where it will be cleaned and composted and eventually turned into soil products for backyard use. These soil products are available to consumers in the Conejo Valley at Carlson Building Materials (1432 Thousand Oaks Blvd., Thousand Oaks).
"Recycling green waste helps Thousand Oaks become a more sustainable community," says Bill Camarillo, Agromin's CEO. "Every pound of green waste we can keep out of landfills and reuse in the form of compost here in the city enables Thousand Oaks and its residents to complete the recycling loop."
Residents must unload their own materials during clean up day. Proof of residency is required. For information on what to bring to the clean-up day, call 805-449-2468. For information about green waste recycling, visit www.agromin.com.
