In recognition of the many benefits of reuse, Morgan Hill, Gilroy and South County hold an annual "Second Chance Week" in September. With the goal of putting more used stuff back into circulation and keeping it out of 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
- Freecycle Day
- Universal Waste Awareness Day
- Donate & Shop at Local Thrift Stores Day
- Donate Coats for Kids & Adults Day
- Second Sight Day - donate used eyeglasses to the Lion's Club
