The people living in and around the Santa Ana campus of California’s Orange Coast College have had the opportunity to take advantage of what was a state of the art recycling facility at the college when it opened more than four decades ago. 2017 has seen the opening of a new recycling facility extending the range of services and activities available to the local community through Orange Coast College after more than a full year of construction and planning had taken place.

The Orange Coast College Recycling Center has seen its campus expand to include new office spaces and meeting rooms for local residents and visitors to enjoy; a further expansion of its services has seen showers and many other rooms created for the good of the people of California who already travel many miles to recycle a range of products and equipment with the college. The new recycling facility is located on a five-acre site with parking available for up to 45 vehicles attending the recycling center to take advantage of the many services on offer.
Orange Coast College looked to both public and private funding sources to create what is seen as one of the leading recycling centers in the state of California. The Measure M bond allowed funding to be obtained from local government sources in conjunction with the CR&R Environmental Services company which offers its trash collection and recycling services to residents of California, Arizona, and Colorado.

In the 21st-century, Orange Coast College has become a leading academic resource for residents of Southern California through the high transfer rate of students moving on to four-year institutions.
One of the most successful areas of Orange Coast College has been the development of the rowing team at the community in a sport better known at four-year colleges. Many of the former students taking part in the rowing team of Orange Coast College have gone on to appear at the Olympics and World Championships for the U.S.
