Crush up your milk cartons and flatten your cereal boxes. The fewer trash cans you set out on the curb, the less you'll pay, under Thousand Oaks' new "Super Recycler" program. Residents in single-family homes who generate one can of trash or less a week will receive a discount of $3.50 off their monthly bill of $16.60, as part of a "waste less, pay less" campaign.

Jim Jevens, Project manager, Waste Management of California Based on discussions with other members of the Waste Management Recycle America staff here in California, I believe that Ventura County is essentially way ahead of the vast majority of California counties in this effort. Specifically, the county Solid Waste Department has formed the county recycling consortium, which is a gathering of public and private entities both in waste disposal and recycling. Our main mission has been to promote countywide interest in "reuse, reduce and recycle."

The Weldon Canyon dump initiative backers (mostly out-of-county investors) have misinformed the public, saying we need a new dump and that each part of the county can have a local dump. Certain citizens like the idea of a neighborhood dump serving west Ventura County, but times have changed. The Supreme Court has ruled that trash disposal is like any business and that government cannot force private trash dumps to serve only a certain area. The privately owned neighborhood dump is a thing of the past.

If you haven't done so already, now is a good time to pitch your pine, spring your spruce or fling your fir. But rather than throwing your Christmas tree into the same trash pile as the Furby packaging, set it aside for recycling. Ventura County's trash haulers are still accepting discarded trees and, instead of letting them rot in landfills, will see that they are recycled as mulch or compost.

The Worm Concern, embroiled in a months-long conflict with its neighbors and county officials, officially surrendered Thursday by withdrawing a request for a conditional use permit for its Tierra Rejada Valley business. The company's Oxnard-based attorney, Fred Rosemund, said it plans to shut down its green waste operation for good and possibly join a green waste venture in Chino.

Oxnard farmer Dan Naumann is happy he listened when authorities told him to mark his aluminum irrigation pipe to guard against theft. Naumann learned this week that $4,800 worth of his missing pipe had turned up at a San Fernando Valley recycling center, where it was being sold. "The labeling that we did is what got it back," Naumann said. Three Covina men were arrested in connection with the pipe theft and booked into Ventura County Jail on Monday.

The immense plastic sheets stretched across local strawberry fields usually end up in the same place as the garbage bags they so closely resemble--buried beneath heaps of rotting trash in the county's landfills. Benn Tsai hand David Goldstein, however, see the sheets, used when growers fumigate their fields, as a valuable resource waiting to be tapped. Or more precisely, hosed down, ground up and recycled.

With its palm trees, marble floors and bronze sculptures, it is easy to confuse the massive white structure for a high-tech computer software corporation. But the marble and bronze are recycled. And this elegant building at Sturgiss Road and Del Norte Avenue in Oxnard is home to trash, not microchips.

The city of Oxnard is dumping four to 10 tons a day of waste, set aside by local businesses and residents for recycling, into Bailard Landfill to avoid the higher cost of taking the loads to a recycling center. The practice of dumping the waste directly into the landfill instead of first sorting all of it for recycling purposes has been going on for about two months, city officials acknowledged last week.
