Waste diversion is the process of diverting waste from landfills through reduction, reuse, recycling or composting.
UAlberta’s goal is to divert 90 per cent
of our waste from landfills by 2020. We are getting closer to that goal each day, consistently applying and improving our waste diversion practices. Learn about UAlberta’s waste diversion practices, including our Zero Waste Program
