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.
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!
*Generate less than 27 gallons of used motor oil per month. Limit one 55-gallon drum of oil and one 55-gallon drum of filters per drop off.
