Welcome to Salinas Valley Recycles!

Salinas Valley Recycles is a public agency and utility service that owns and operates the only open and active landfill in the Salinas Valley. We are not the garbage hauler, but you can find information and contacts for your local garbage and recycling collection company on the Your Hauler page.

Salinas Valley Recycles Cares about your money!

Salinas Valley Recycles cares about saving money for your community. We manage your landfill responsibly without taking on unnecessary debt that will cost you in the long run, or importing trash from other cities for income.

Salinas Valley Recycles cares about your community because it’s our home too. 

Learn more about our fiscally sustainable approach to solid waste management and financing in our Annual Report.
