Rycycle LogoRecycling bottles and cans In 2007, Sacramento State diverted 83.7 percent of its waste from the landfill. The State of California’s goal for institutions such as the University is 50 percent.

The integrated waste manager has set a goal of zero waste for the campus. The campus community can help reach that goal by recycling bottles and cans. There are approximately 50 bins for outdoor bottle and can recycling—one outside of each building.

Recycle containers for bottles and cans are now conveniently located inside the entrance of the AIRC building and in each of the student lounges on the first three floors. This is a pilot project and other buildings will follow if indoor recycling is successful at AIRC.
