This year, USC is focused on achieving our 2020 waste goal. Some improvements to look for in fall 2018:

  • improved recycling tools
  • expanded food composting
  • plastic straw ban in Residential Restaurants
  • campus-wide educational outreach promoting waste diversion

We’re also significantly increasing campus tailgating recycling efforts,
and continuing the award-winning Zero Waste program at the LA Coliseum.

Engagement and education will play a major role in all of these efforts.
Throughout the year, the Office of Sustainability and our partners will hold
Sustainability Forums, launch a new sustainability “Deep Dive” series, and host
the annual Sustainable USC Celebration, amongst other programming
initiatives. Most importantly, we’ll bring together all campus stakeholders
to develop our 2028 Plan, the critical next step in USC’s sustainable evolution.
