Zero-Waste Initiative   

Moving Towards a Closed-Loop, Circular Economy

SFU has implemented a standardized four-stream waste system across the University that diverted over 70% of the Institution's landfill waste within the first year of its launch.  The Zero Waste Committee continues to make improvements, but needs your help to further decrease contamination.
