How to Place Your Cart for Automated Collection
The automated arm of the collection truck needs room to grab the cart. Carts should be placed 2-3 feet apart from each other and from objects such as mailboxes and cars with the wheels facing the curb. Carts should be out by 7:00 a.m. on collection days.
Don’t Throw Away Your E-Waste, Recycle It
Don’t throw away your old electronic equipment, or let it pile up in your garage. Commonly called e-waste, items include:

- VCRs and DVD players
- Small Kitchen Appliances
- Fax Machines
Bring your e-waste to the Gold Coast Recycling Center, 5275 Colt Street, Ventura, for free recycling. It’s convenient and easy. Call 805-642-9236.
What goes in the Trash?
Hopefully, very little. After you have recycled, composted, filled the yard waste cart, donated old clothing and goods, and done all of those good things and more– most of the rest can go in the trash.
