Zero Waste Guide

SF State is working towards becoming a zero waste campus, meaning sending nothing to the landfill. Almost everything you dispose of can be reused, composted, or recycled in San Francisco!

Some of the projects we're implementing to get us to zero waste include:

  • Phasing out single use items like water bottles and straws in accordance with local and state law.
  • Installing waste collection bins throughout campus. 3-bin systems are available outdoors and compost bins are available in campus restrooms.
