Oxnard, Calif.—At the September 11 Oxnard City Council meeting, council members approved a 3-year, $4 million agreement with Agromin for the company to provide organic waste recycling services to the city.

Approximately 12,000 tons of organic material is collected at curbside each year in Oxnard and another 11,000 tons is collected annually at Del Norte Regional Recycling and Transfer Station. This green waste will be hauled to Agromin’s processing centers on Limoneira Company property in Santa Paula and to the Simi Valley Recycling Center at the Simi Valley Landfill.

As part of the agreement, Agromin will give away up to 25,000 four-quart bags of compost at community events including Earth Day, America Recycles Day, the California Strawberry Festival and sustainability or conservation-related events hosted by the city. Agromin will also provide bulk soil products to city parks and landscaping at a 30 percent discount.
