Recycling

The University of Alberta has set a goal to reach 50 per cent waste diversion by 2015 as part of its Sustainability Plan. You can help by recycling and composting your waste.

In 2013, the university diverted approximately 40 per cent of its waste.

What's in the waste stream?

Campus waste contains many different components. Approximately 92 per cent is either recyclable or compostable.
