There are two new programs regarding recycling in Monterey. First, Monterey City Disposal Service and the City of Monterey would like to introduce you to the commercial Food Scrap Collection Program. The purpose of this program is to make it simple and convenient to participate in composting by adding food scrap collection to your existing commercial waste collection service. Much like with mixed recyclables, the food scrap collection program will allow you to add an additional container(s) for separating food scraps from other types of waste. Get details, including an informational video.
Second, now you can recycle your paint, deck coating, primers, sealers, stains, varnishes and more at local PaintCare locations.PaintCare currently operates paint stewardship programs on behalf of paint manufacturers in states with paint stewardship laws. California's program started in 2012. Visit the www.PaintCare.org to learn how to recycle your paint.
