The University of Oregon Zero Waste Program provides zero waste services to all campus including University Housing. As students living in Housing comprise over 25% of the student population, implementing waste reduction and recovery opportunities in Housing has a significant impact on campus as students utilize these practices campus wide while inspiring other students throughout college. The Zero Waste Program efforts are threaded throughout Housing and are implemented in the Residence Hall kitchens, in each Residence Hall room, in Off-campus Housing and in Graduate student and family housing. As Housing operates as a small city, residents are engaged at every step of the process from moving in to moving out at the end of the year.
