Bin Programs & Self-Haul Options
In the City of Ventura there are two options for handling construction waste: using the City's franchise hauler or self-hauling.
Using the City's Hauler
The first is to use the City's franchise hauler, E J. Harrison and Sons. They are the only authorized hauler for solid waste (City of Ventura Ordinance Code Article 2, Sec. 6.500.210 et. seq.) They can be contacted at 805-647-1414.
For those projects that require a Waste Management Plan (WMP), Harrison can assist by diverting at least 50% of the materials and provide final reporting forms for the project. Please inform them if the construction project is under a WMP when ordering service.
The second option, self-haul of C&D materials is allowed only when a licensed contractor uses his/her own employees and equipment as an incidental part of the total service (City Ordinance Code Article 2, Section 6.500.230.5).
If the contractor does not have his / her own bins and hauling equipment or employees to self-haul, the contractor is required to use E J. Harrison and Sons services. All contractors that self-haul are encouraged to segregate the C&D waste on-site and direct haul the materials to local recycling facilities. For projects that require a WMP, the contractor is responsible for submitting to the City of Ventura, all necessary forms, weight tags and final reports on waste diversion for the project. The documents necessary for the WMP are listed below.
For the self-haul option, the following facilities accept segregated materials. Proof of proper disposal and recycling are required for any WMP.
