In recognition of the many benefits of reuse, Morgan Hill, South County and Gilroy hold an annual "Second Chance Week" event in September. With the goal of putting more used stuff back into circulation and keeping it out of the landfills, "Second Chance Week" features a diverse range of innovative reuse, resale and repair activities. Past events have included:
The popular South County Community-Wide Garage Sale
Universal Waste Awareness Day
Donate and Shop at Local Thrift Stores Day
Donate Coats for Kids and Adults Day
2nd Sight Day - donate used eyeglasses to the Lion's Club
Recycle Your Cycle Day - donate old bikes for reuse
