Cal Zero Waste manages over 35 tons of solid waste that move through the campus daily and is committed to expanding recycling programs while providing effective refuse collection services.
Our office offers recycling and refuse pickup, debris box ordering, and porta-potty placement. To operate these programs, Cal Zero Waste works with various other campus entities such as Custodial Services for indoor waste and recycling collection and Grounds Operations for greenwaste and plant debris services.
Our staff consists of a Zero Waste Manager, a Zero Waste Operations Supervisor, Zero Waste Specialists, Truck Drivers, and Equipment Operators. We also employ a part time student staff responsible for education and outreach programs, waste reduction projects, and building assessments.
We coordinate the recycling efforts for mixed paper, cans and bottles, greenwaste and wood, food waste, toner cartridges, and mixed metal. We are also a resource for general information on waste prevention and disposal, material reuse and recycling, and sustainable and environmentally preferred products.
