USD is becoming a Zero Waste Campus!
Zero waste is the idea that we can live anywhere without accumulating waste. With a zero waste perspective we imagine a future where all goods are either reusable indefinitely, recyclable, or biodegradable. Our main focus is greening the SLP, the building that produces the most waste on campus, through composting and further waste diversion. Mother Rosalie Hill Hall is also a main focus to be on track to become the first zero waste building on campus. The Zero Waste philosophy can be applied to any product or material; no resources should ever end up in a landfill!
