UB has created a strategic plan to move the university toward Zero Waste. Our goal is to reduce the amount of physical waste that is produced across our campuses. The plan specifically focuses on how to improve UB's campus-wide recycling diversion rate and expand composting opportunities.
UBReUSE is a student-run campus waste diversion program. The program captures goods during move-out, that are useful, but no longer wanted or needed by their owner. UBReUSE's goal is to connect these materials with new owners and reduce the amount of stuff going to landfill.
Help UB Football tackle ZERO WASTE.
Since the 2014 football season, UB students volunteered more than 580 hours to help UB Stadium go green, by ensuring fans recycle and compost. A BIG thank you to our awesome students!
By using recycled paper, you reduce pollution and demand for raw materials. UB has been using recycled paper for nearly two decades. We are proud to use 100 percent recycled paper in all our public computing labs, and throughout our departments.
Aside from reducing your need for electronic devices, turning off equipment not actively in use is the simplest and most effective strategy to save energy.
Other energy saving tips include selecting energy efficient goods and taking advantage of technology, such as power management features or motion sensors.
