Recycling Department

Santa Monica College  
 is committed to preserving our environment  

REDUCE … REUSE . . . RECYCLE

IT’S OUR ONLY WORLD  

   

At SMC many of our used materials are transformed into new and useful products instead of ending up in landfills or incinerators.  

 The City of Santa Monica provides recycling containers for yard waste, cardboard and commingled waste (located on Pearl St. to be used by SMC and residents) for recycling of glass, plastic, steel, aluminum, paper, cardboard.
