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.
