Environmental Services

Morgan Hill's City Council is committed to providing high quality and sustainable services to the entire Morgan Hill community. Fundamental to the City Council’s success is their ongoing priority of protecting the environment.

The Environmental Services Team, which is part of the Community Services Department, manages the Citys residential and business waste disposal services and organics and recycling programs which are franchised to Recology South Valley. Environmental Services also ensures state and federal requirements are met to protect our creeks and prevent stormwater runoff pollutants from entering the storm drain system.

Recycling Right in Morgan Hill


Recycling the right way is more important now than ever. Markets for recyclables have changed and the processors are requiring cleaner material. Just because you put something in your recycling cart doesn’t mean it gets recycled. Even worse, it can contaminate a load of otherwise recyclable materials. Recycling only works when it’s done right!

Visit recyclestuff.org to find out where just about anything can be donated, reused
or recycled.
