Organizers are predicting Ventura residents will collect a record amount of rubbish today during the city's annual Community Cleanup Day.
Residents are invited to haul trash and yard waste to one of three drop-off locations in the city for free disposal, said Bill Lykins of the Ventura recycling office.
Each site will be open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Trash bins that can hold 40 cubic yards of material each will be stationed at Ventura High School, Buena High School and at Ecology Control, a company located at 2055 N. Ventura Ave.
Last year, city residents hauled enough refuse to the drop-off sites to fill 100 of the industrial-sized dumpsters, said Myron Harrison of E. J. Harrison, the city's trash hauler.
