Three times per year, residents of San Benito County are invited to shred important documents, drop off unwanted e-waste, and pick up compost during our Environmental Day Events. Proof of residency is required. Space is limited so arrive early to ensure your participation. For upcoming events please visit our Newsletter section or call 831-636-7500.

Secure Document Shredding

Bring up to 5 Bankers Boxes (legal size; 24 x 12 x 10) of documents to be confidentially and securely shredded on-site. Paperclips and staples do not need to be removed.

Electronic Waste Recycling

Bring your unwanted e-waste such as televisions, computers and their accessories, cell phones, laptops, game consoles, radios, stereos, and small electronics with cords. No large household appliances (stoves, refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc.) will be accepted.

Compost Giveaway

Residents may receive up to 32 gallons of compost to use as a soil amendment for your garden and landscape. Please bring your own shovel and container. Only while supplies last.
