Become a Zero Waste Campus by 2040

Municipal Solid Waste (MSW)

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.

Generate less than 0.05 tons (100 lbs.) of total MSW per weighted campus user.

Divert 90% of MSW away from the landfill and/or incinerator.

Limit MSW recycling contamination rates to <5% for mixed recyclables and <1% for source separated recyclables.

Conduct life cycle impact assessment of downstream effects of MSW.

Construction and Demolition Waste (C&D)

This is an accordion element with a series of buttons that open and close related content panels.

Generate <5 lbs/ft² of C&D waste during new construction and major renovations.

Generate <10 lbs/ft² of C&D waste during tenant improvement and minor renovations.

Divert 90% of non-hazardous C&D waste away from the landfill and/or incinerator.

Limit C&D recycling contamination rates to <2% for mixed recyclables and <0.5% for source separated recyclables.

Conduct life cycle impact assessment of downstream effects of C&D waste.
