Trash Talk – Opportunity

Classes in Recycling and Resource Management (RRM) start August 28 at Santa Monica College.

RRM is among the largest and most rapidly growing industries in America. As more cities and businesses develop sustainability and zero waste policies, the need increases for personnel who can properly manage resource use and recycling.

The Recycling and Resource Management curriculum emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach, exploring recycling and resource management from a variety of perspectives and in a variety of settings. 

RRM 1 & 2 classes, taught by local Sustainability Practitioner, Professor Victoria Charles are offered the first eight weeks from August 28 to Oct 18.  RRM 3 & 4 for classes continue for eight weeks from Oct 23 to Dec 13, of the Fall semester. Classes meet TTH RRM 1&3, 3-6 p.m.,  and RRM  2&4 6:30-9:35 p.m., and repeat for the Spring semester. RRM 1&2 are taught by Professor Victoria Charles.  Santa Monica College is located at 1700 Pico Blvd, Santa Monica CA 90405 (310) 434-4000 Victoria Charles can be reached at:

Another Interesting Option for those Planning to attend SMC.

SMC launched “Santa Monica College Promise”, a program that offers free enrollment and $400 vouchers for textbooks to new, full-time students who graduated from a local or participating high school this year. It is effective immediately for students interested in attending SMC this fall semester, which begins August 27, or in spring 2019. To be eligible for SMC Promise, students must have just graduated from high school in 2018, and be headed straight to SMC as first-year students. They must also be “full-time” (enrolled in 12 units or more per semester) to be eligible for free enrollment and to have payment of their Associated Students fees covered. The textbook vouchers—$200 for fall and $200 for spring—will be available to those who receive the California College Promise Grant, which waives enrollment fees for eligible students. SMC Promise students will be enrolled in the First Year Experience (FYE) program, which provides priority registration and dedicated counseling support to help ease the transition to college and ensure students are on the fastest track possible to their four-year school or career of choice. Students will be required to meet with a counselor at least twice every semester.

Classes start August 28th.  There is still time and space to enroll.
