Zero Waste @ BCC

The newest large scale Green initiative taking place at BCC is the establishment of a plan for going Zero Waste. Zero Waste is a concept of long term planning of campus activities, practices and policies which reduce the amount of waste materials going into the landfill through the three Rs: Reduction of use, Reuse of materials and Recycling of materials. The two primary objectives of the plan are:

1. Continue Ongoing Awareness and Reflection of Waste Practices

2. Manage Waste Streams of three major areas:

  • Paper/Cardboard Waste
  • Food and Beverage Waste
  • Facilities and Grounds Waste

As we develop and implement the plan, be sure to return to this page to track progress on the campus-wide efforts related to the goal of being Zero Waste by the year 2020.
