Our Goal

The University of California Office of the President has set Zero Waste goals for all UC campuses to achieve by 2020. As of 2017-2018, UCSC successfully diverted 60% of waste from the landfill. However, there is still a large amount of landfill waste that could be reduced, reused, repaired, recycled or composted instead.
