Welcome to Green Santa Clarita!
Protecting the environment is a high priority for the City of Santa Clarita. Our efforts began shortly after cityhood and have yielded tremendous results. For instance:
- The City is on its way to reaching the statewide goal of 75% recycling of all waste generated in Santa Clarita. To learn more about the diversion rate, as determined by CalRecycle, visit the state website here.
- To date, the annual River Rally event has removed more than 450,000 pounds of trash from the Santa Clara River.
- Over 92% of construction and demolition debris in Santa Clarita has been recycled, totaling over 155,000 tons.
- On February 11, 2019, the City began a streetlight conversion project that will swap out high-pressure sodium lights for LED lights and is forecast to reduce greenhouse emissions by 60%. The project is scheduled to be complete by Fall of 2019.
The City offers programs to help residents and business owners go green in big and small ways. If you have questions or need assistance, don’t hesitate to call the Environmental Services Division at 661-286-4098.
