Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

We are hoping to achieve and maintain the UC Office of the President Sustainable Practices Policy goal of Zero Waste by reducing recycling contamination and finding an effective way to deal with green waste. Waste and recycling cross contamination and lack of education on the subject is an issue not only at UCSC, but worldwide. We plan on doing this by engaging key departments and campus stakeholders to identify issues and launch a campaign and system to reduce the contamination rates.
