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:

The Spring Street Faire is coming!!
Volunteer at the Spring Street Faire, May 7th-10th.

The UO Campus Zero Waste Program has diverted as much as
85% of waste from the landfill at previous Street Faires.
We could not do this without the help of our excellent volunteers.
Volunteering gives you an opportunity to take in the Street Faire while
helping educate faire-goers and students about sorting and zero waste.

To volunteer, click this link fill out the sign-up sheet
or Contact Phil Chesbro: (541) 346-2354 or compost@uoregon.edu

carbon dioxide load in the atmosphere.
especially those that engage and sustain community action.
