The City of Santa Monica's Resource Recovery & Recycling Division provides a commercial program for collecting food scraps and food-soiled paper. 

Adding composting collection for food scraps can save money and have a big environmental impact. Restaurants and food service especially can benefit from subscribing to compost collection, since food scraps make up about 60% of a sit down restaurant's waste stream. 

There is no additional charge for organics collection to businesses that have city refuse collection service. Participants are required to separate all organic waste and place it into the special green organics container provided by the City. 

To learn more about the program call 310.458.2223
