Recycling efforts on campus include the following areas:

  • Green waste
  • Paper recycling
  • Cans and bottles

Because of a partnership with the City of San Bernardino, SBVC saves $100 for every third 3-cubic yard bin that is emptied on campus.

In addition, SBVC’s Alpha Gamma Sigma student club has held e-waste collection drives twice a year since 2010. The events are open and widely advertised to the public. The drives have raised thousands of dollars for scholarships and group activities by accepting old televisions, computers, cell phones and more.
