The Integrated Waste Management Division (IWMD) reduces waste, prevents pollution through the management of Household Hazardous Waste, and promotes the sustainable management of solid waste materials in partnership with the community.  For information on residential solid waste collection companies, including service areas and a service area map, click here.  Commercial solid waste collection companies, including recycling and waste disposal facilities, can be found here.

Additionally, the IWMD administers a Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) collection program serving unincorporated area residents and residents from the cities of Ojai, Santa Paula, and Fillmore.  For information on the County’s program as well as other local city HHW programs, click here.

If a business qualifies as a Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator (CESQG), the business may properly dispose of hazardous waste at a local HHW facility which significantly reduces disposal cost versus using a private contractor.  For information on the County’s CESQG Program, click here.

IWMD is also responsible for implementing the Disaster Debris Management Plan (DDMP).  The DDMP is implemented during the clean up or “recovery phase” of a disaster and involves working closely with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services and solid waste collectors, organizing clean up crews, tracking debris tonnage and filing any required reports with federal, state, and local agencies.
