Special Events Waste Diversion for Monterey County

Each year, Monterey County hosts a number of events that draw large crowds from all over the world, including the world famous MotoGP and Sea Otter Classic. Recycling Services requires that all special events submit a diversion plan.

Recycling Services assists event organizers to develop and implement their diversion plans to ensure the proper disposal of waste and to maximize the recycling of materials used at these events. The team also collaborates with Monterey County Parks Department, the hauler, custodial services, event volunteers, event organizers, vendors, attendees, and other staff to identify ways to increase diversion at special events.

A large event is defined as:

  • Serves an average of more than 2,000 individuals per day of operation, and
  • Charges an admission price or is run by a local agency.

To find an upcoming special event, please visit Monterey County Parks Department Event Calendar:
