The University of Pittsburgh began recycling in 1990 & our goal is to reduce landfill waste 25% from 2017 levels by 2030. In the meantime, Pitt has continued to divert materials from the landfill at a rate of ~35% recyclables and 170+ tons of compostables per year (and growing). While the University does not have a zero waste goal in place, many individuals and entities are adopting a zero waste mindset.
