Cardboard Recycling
28,000 Pounds of Cardboard Recycled During Fall 2010 Move In

Fall 2010 was very exciting for many reasons, not the least of which was the huge effort by students, their families, UCSC staff, and Ecology Action to recycle the cardboard, Styrofoam and plastic associated with moving into a new space.

With a lot of cooperation, great volunteers, and clear signage, UCSC was able to divert 28,000 pounds of cardboard, 60 yards of Styrofoam, and 900 pounds of plastic film from the local landfills.

Background: “Diverted waste” is the portion of the solid waste stream that is recycled or composted and thus does not end up in a landfill. Currently, UC Santa Cruz diverts approximately 90% of its construction waste, and 53% of non-construction waste. The UC system-wide target is 75% waste diversion by 2012 and 100% diversion by 2020.
