  • It's Not Too Late

    It’s that time of year again. As family and friends are gathering for the holidays, flu activity is increasing. Now is a great time to get a flu vaccine if you have not gotten vaccinated yet. A flu vaccine can protect you and your loved ones. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season.

  • Keep the holidays happy and safe for your pets

Ag Used Oil and Filter Collection

Monterey County is world famous for the bounty of produce grown here. As a farmer you are a steward of our precious land, tending to the soil and protecting it for an abundant harvest now and into the future. Hazardous wastes, such as used motor oil, pesticides, waste diesel and other chemicals can pollute groundwater and reduce soil fertility. Handling these materials responsibly and safely will keep your land healthy and productive.

Make an appointment to drop off used motor oil and filters at these locations for FREE!
