Green Sports Alliance Net Zero Waste Champion for Waste Diversion
July 29, 2022
We’re honored to have been recognized as a Net Zero Waste Champion by the Green Sports Alliance for achieving a waste diversion rate of over 90%!
When we started our Zero Waste Program in 2015, we implemented compostable & recyclable products and dedicated a sorting team to ensure trash goes into the proper waste streams to help us reach our goal of achieving zero waste. In the past seven years, we’ve received 10 different awards for our program, including the 2021 Pac-12 Zero Waste Challenge Overall Winner.
To further our sustainability efforts, this school year, University of Southern California has implemented the Single-Use Plastics Elimination – Beverage Bottles Policy for all campus operations, including the Coliseum.
