CU Boulder's Zero Waste Program crushing cardboard waste: 40,000 Pounds of Cardboard Diverted from Landfill

The week before classes start is always a busy and exciting time for campus, over 7000 students move into the residence hall during this time. This year the Zero Waste program provided recycling services for over a dozen welcome events, recycled 20 tons of cardboard and film plastic, and sponsored an on-campus reuse sale.
