America’s Teenagers Are Quickly Becoming the Next Generation of Smokers
Emerging tobacco products are threatening decades of progress in public health. At the forefront is a relatively new and non-traditional electronic cigarette (e-cigarette), JUUL, which has become increasingly popular among youth and young adults and has quickly become the top-selling e-cigarette on the market.

Avoid Heat Related Illness
Hot weather is on the way. It is possible we will see inland locations with possible highs near 100°. As you and your family are out enjoying the warmer weather, the Monterey County Health Department would like to remind you that the best defense against heat-related illness is prevention.
Welcome to Recycling Resources & Recovery Services
The Mission of the Monterey County Recycling Resource and Recovery Services Program is to protect public health and safety and to reduce the amount of solid waste that goes to local landfills by:
- Implementing programs that remove barriers to waste reduction and promote proper disposal of waste;
- Supporting and/or developing policies to increase diversion, minimize litter, and increase producer responsibility;
- Educating the community on best practices to increase participation in waste diversion programs; and
- Collaborating with the Monterey County community to maximize the use of resources and standardize practices.
Monterey County Recycling Services (MCRS) is comprised of a team who manage a well-rounded set of programs that support Monterey County residents, businesses and visitors’ efforts to divert waste from landfills to preserve Monterey County’s unique, beautiful ecosystem from the beaches bordering the Monterey Bay Sanctuary to the abundant agricultural fields across the Salinas Valley from the harmful impacts of improper disposal of waste.
