Solid Waste

  • In compliance with AB 939 which was passed by the State Assembly in 1989, Glendale Community College recycles a minimum of 50% of all solid waste by contract with Southland Disposal. Southland Disposal operates a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) where recyclable materials are sorted and removed from our waste stream. You can download a printable brochure that describes their services here: Southland Disposal Brochure.

It is illegal in California to put in the trash any of the following: batteries, fluorescent lights, televisions, computers, and all electronic items with a circuit board (VCRs, printers, stereos, radios, microwaves, telephones).
