About City of Camarillo
Camarillo is the fourth largest city in Ventura County with a population of 65,201 at the 2010 census. It is named after Adolfo and Juan Camarillo, two of the few Californios (pre-1848 California natives of Hispanic ancestry) to preserve the city's heritage after the arrival of Anglo settlers. The historic Camarillo House, a three-story, 14-room Queen Anne Victorian, was built in 1892
Incorporated as a city in 1964, Camarillo also is home to California State University Channel Islands, formerly the site of Camarillo State Mental Hospital. The city has an historic Old Town that was laid out back in 1910 and it is also home to Camarillo Premium Outlets, 160-store mall that attracts shoppers throughout the U.S. and the world.
Camarillo is primarily a bedroom community popular with families and retirees. It is also some of the most desirable land in the city limits, located on the north and south sides of the Ventura.
Gold Coast Recycling & Transfer Station

You know all those grass clippings, tree branches and leaves that you place in your brown green waste container? For the past two decades, Harrison Industries trucks have transported them to our strategic partner, Agromin Premium Soil Products, which each year uses cutting edge technology to convert almost 380,000 tons of the green waste materials into its organic mulches, compost, wood chips and other products that naturally fertilize plants and trees.
Agromin has more than 240 premium soil products and sells them at 41 retail locations in Ventura County and throughout Southern California. These products, available to the public at 41 retail outlets in Southern California, save water, help reduce soil erosion and reduce the use of non-organic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides – making our air and water cleaner.
In addition to its retail locations, you can order Agromin products online.
Agromin also is in the process of transforming its existing green waste compost facility on its 9.6-acre site in the Santa Clara Valley into a 26-acre Biogenic Energy Park that will convert food waste into biogenetic renewable energy. The facility will help accommodate the residential curbside food waste recycling program that Harrison is in the process of implementing, in compliance with state laws.
