Go Santa Monica

Your Green Cart Just Got Green

Santa Monica Food + Green Composting Program is now CITYWIDE!  We are now taking recycling to the next level in Santa Monica by testing composting collection through a new program. Organic material like food and yard debris are a huge portion of the material we throw away, and it is 100% compostable. The program accepts all food and yard debris in your green cart but strictly prohibits any type of plastic materials, glass or metal.

Check on the image below for a printable flyer.
