Welcome to the Resource Recovery & Recycling Division

**NOTICE** Street sweeping for the week of June 1 has begun. Please follow all posted street signage. Due to recent events, there could be a delay to the sweeping of some areas. Much of our focus is still on emergency clean up and recovery of Santa Monica's most affected areas. Please know, if your posted street sweeping time is after curfew, your street sweeping will be delayed until next week. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
