A Wasted Opportunity
Since the Zero Waste by 2020 goal was first established 13 years ago, the University of California has strived to eliminate landfill waste from its campuses. However, none of the UC campuses are projected to meet zero waste as 2020 looms closer, and it is unclear whether the University has done enough to tackle this ambitious goal. “A Wasted Opportunity” breaks down the history and current status of the zero waste initiative, taking a closer look into UCLA’s progress and roadblocks and how it compares to the UC overall.
