Take UB’s Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycling
Pledge and show your commitment!
Recycling is a very important part of our daily lives and for
nearly thirty years recycling has been focus at UB. However, more
is required in order to be sustainable.
UB is working toward achieving Zero Waste on campus. Zero Waste
challenges us to greatly reduce material waste on campus by
promoting a different approach to waste: “Rethink, Reduce,
Reuse, Repair, Recycle.”
The more we engage in the 5Rs, the less garbage ends up in our
landfills. Practicing the 5Rs reduces air and water pollution and
harmful greenhouse gas emissions. The 5Rs conserve energy, preserve
natural resources and even help to create jobs.
Reduce your environmental footprint and take the 5Rs pledge
