2011 Campus Waste Highlights
Campus waste contains many different components. Approximately 92 per cent is either recyclable or compostable, and the remaining eight per cent is waste.
In 2011, approximately 32 per cent of campus waste was diverted (recycled or composted), a 10 per cent improvement from 2005/2006.
