Free community cleanup, recycling and document shredding

City of Ventura residents have an opportunity to discard and recycle unwanted items free of charge and shred paper documents (up to 4 banker size boxes) on Saturday, May 4, 9am-12pm, at 765 S. Seaward Avenue as part of the City of Ventura Community Cleanup and Recycling Event.

The event is conveniently located at the corner of Seaward Avenue and Alessandro Avenue; residents can access the collection site via Alessandro. Items accepted include metal, wood, yard waste, furniture, appliances, computers and other electronics. Household hazardous waste such as motor oil, batteries and paint will not be accepted at this event.

“The City holds Community Cleanup events four times a year in partnership with E. J. Harrison & Sons,” said Joe Yahner, Environmental Services Manager. “This allows residents to maintain their property free of debris and clutter by disposing of bulky waste and other items that aren’t normally accepted with the weekly trash pick-up. Well-kept properties keep our city safe and enhance our neighborhoods.”

This event is for city of Ventura residents; please bring photo ID with proof of residency (current utility bill, or driver’s license with your current address).

Residents who want to dispose of hazardous waste such as paint, solvents, motor oil, etc. can call (805) 652-4525 to set up an appointment for the next household hazardous waste collection event held on the third Saturday of each month.
