The Orange Coast College recently had a ribbon cutting event to mark the completion of a larger recycling facility, which would then be opened to the public. The Aden Avenue Facility, which covers an area of about five acres, had taken the construction team about one year and four months costing $7 million in the process. The College had been carrying out recycling services for the past four decades although it was being done in a relatively smaller facility, which only occupied an acre of land. The new facility would allow more people around Southern California to dispose unwanted materials and equipment and get compensation for that.

Aden Avenue Facility included offices, showers, a meeting area and other rooms. The parking lot has been expanded and can accommodate up to 45 vehicles.
