Job Description

The County of Monterey, with its moderate Mediterranean climate, is a diverse community set in a picturesque coastal location. Boasting such world-renowned attractions as the spectacular Big Sur Coast, Laguna Seca Raceway, 17-Mile Drive, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, the Steinbeck Center, the Monterey Jazz and Blues Festivals and Pebble Beach – possibly the world’s most famous golf course, it’s easy to see why so many choose to live here and an estimated 4 million visitors a year make Monterey County their destination of choice. Established in 1951 as a Garbage and Refuse Disposal District, ReGen Monterey (formerly known as the Monterey Regional Waste Management District) has been an industry pioneer in providing cost-effective solid waste management and resource recovery services. In 1998, the District received the first ever Gold Excellence Award for "Best Solid Waste System in North America" from the Solid Waste Association of North America. ReGen was awarded the “2003 Landfill Methane Outreach Program Community Partner” Certificate by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. In 2014, the District received SWANA’s Gold Excellence Award in composting for its Anaerobic Digestion Pilot Project.
