The City of Santa Monica is dedicated to achieving Zero Waste - change in perspective of what is considered garbage and to maximize the recovery and reuse of the commodities to the maximum extent possible.

In 2014, the City of Santa Monica adopted the Zero Waste Strategic Operations Plan, providing a roadmap for achieving 95% diversion by 2030. 

In 2015, City Hall, the Santa Monica Main Public Library as well as each branch removed deskside garbage containers to move the City's workforce to zero waste.
