School Recycling for Santa Monica
The City of Santa Monica offers a free recycling program for all private schools within city limits (public schools are on a different system).

Each school, large or small, has a different approach and there are no correct or incorrect ways to do things. However, there are many easy steps that can be taken to save time and avoid undue burdens for those involved in the process.

See our School Recycling Program Tips page for a step-by-step organizing guide.

Learn about recycling first hand by taking a guided tour of the Santa Monica Recycling Center at 2411 Delaware Ave., Santa Monica 90404.
Contact:, 310.458.8916.
