UBC is aspiring to be a “Zero Waste” campus where all unwanted products and materials will be treated as resources that can be used again. To help achieve this goal, UBC is replacing garbage cans with multi-bin recycling stations. Targets to divert garbage away from landfills are also being developed as part of the Zero Waste Action Plan. Our goal is to divert 60% of our operational waste from the landfill by 2016, and 80% by 2020; but to do it we need your help!
Time to Sort it Out.
You can make a difference and create a green, zero waste campus by using recycling stations to sort your food scraps and recyclables into the proper bins (and out of the garbage).
