OCC Recycling Goes Solar!

The OCC Recycling Center has just completed a long awaited photovoltaic solar installation that will contribute greatly to reducing our carbon footprint! The 8.4 KW system is the result of several years of hard work and dedication by a very motivated group of Student Leaders and OCC Sierra Club members.​

The system consists of 40 210w solar panels and is expected to save over $1200 per year in energy costs for OCC. We now have the capability to log onto a website from anywhere in the world to view our current usage and output. See our energy production in real time​.

We would like to thank the Associated Students of Orange Coast College for funding this project and the opportunity to achieve our sustainability goals!​

OCC Recycling Accepts E-Waste

​The OCC Recycling Center is now a State Certified Collector of electronic waste.  We can accept televisions, computer monitors, computers, printers, fax machines, projectors etc.  We accept these materials every day during our normal business hours on a donation basis.
