Three times each year, residents of San Benito County are invited to an Environmental Day event!  These events are open to residents and Regional Agency Members to shred documents, drop off unwanted electronic waste, and pick up free compost! Proof of residency is required and space is limited so please bring proper documentation and arrive early to ensure your participation.

Please Note: All events will be entirely self-serve.
