Recycling and Resource Management Program


The Recycling and Resource Management (RRM) Program at Santa Monica College is designed to provide formal training for individuals interested in working in the green jobs sector or bring an environmental competitive edge to their traditional position, such as marketing or facilities management.
As more cities and businesses develop sustainability and zero-waste policies, there is an increased need for trained staff that can properly manage organizational resources and initiate programs. This training program will provide students with the resources they need to compete in the green jobs marketplace.
