OP-18: Waste Diversion
Office of Sustainability
Materials recycled, composted, reused, donated, re-sold, or otherwise diverted :
Materials disposed in a solid waste landfill or incinerator :
A brief description of programs, policies, infrastructure investments, outreach efforts, and/or other factors that contributed to the diversion rate:
UF does not have a policy or procedure to track the total amount of waste donated, resold, or otherwise diverted, but a number of options are available to the campus community. This number includes only materials recycled or composted centrally. Donated and reused materials are not a part of the reported number above.
Asset Management encourages staff to reuse campus materials through the surplus warehouse and swap meet website. (http://www.fa.ufl.edu/am)
Housing residents donate a large amount of materials to local charities through the annual move-out waste reduction program.
