Recycling & Waste Reduction Education
The program offers the UCSF campus a variety of training and educational opportunities. We can cater training’s specifically to your department’s needs and time requirements. One of our goals is to make recycling and composting as easy and convenient as possible for you. However, just because you have access to containers does not mean everyone gets it right. We know different cities and counties have different rules and guidelines about what can be recycled and composted, so we want to clear up any questions you might have about where to toss at UCSF.
