Welcome to the University of Oregon Campus Zero Waste Program. The Program was founded by students in 1991 and continues to be staffed by mostly student employees. In 2012, the Program took a leap to become the Campus Zero Waste Program. As the program began with recycling it has evolved to include reuse, waste reduction, composting and zero waste events. Thus, the Program has taken on a new path of zero waste.
Thanks for thinking zero waste and enjoy this website. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or comments:
OPPORTUNITIES TO WORK ZERO WASTE AT
SUMMER MUSIC FESTIVALS!
Are you intrested in gaining some hands on experience with zero waste in Bend? The Broomsmen are providing a zero waste event managment service to the Les Schwab amphitheater concert series this summer. They have 12 concerts and the bend brewfest, well over 100, 000 people over the summer. There are a few paid spots available and a bunch of volunteer/intern positions. Free tickets to the shows.
Project Polar Bear
Project Polar Bear is a way for small teams of young people
and groups/classrooms to collectively make a big difference!
The bi-national contest challenges young leaders to develop community projects that reduce the
carbon dioxide load in the atmosphere.
especially those that engage and sustain community action.
