Waste reduction hub
Waste diversion requires innovation
Over 68% of waste produced everyday at the UVic campus is diverted from the landfill through innovative recycling and composting initiatives. This achievement reflects the hard work and passion of a dedicated campus community. For more information on waste reduction goals, see our commitments page.
However, diversion is only one part of our strategy, our ultimate goal is to become a zero-waste institution. See our zero-waste page for details.
Zero waste is our long term vision at UVic. Find information about a few zero waste programs.
