Household Recycling

Recycling at home is an easy way to keep waste out of the landfills and help Monterey reach its goal of Zero Waste. Remember to reduce what you use, reuse what you can, and recycle or donate the rest. SOME OTHER WAYS TO REDUCE WASTE:

Reducing Waste At Home

Sustainability starts at home with the everyday choices you make such as using reusable bags while shopping, purchasing durable goods, or repairing items instead of sending them to the landfill. Used items can be donated to thrift stores, sold at garage sales or given away through websites such as FreeCycle.
When remodeling or building a new home, invest in Energy Star rated appliances and apply for rebates available from local agencies and retailers. Follow the City of Monterey Building Inspection Division for Green Building Ordinance information.
