On December 6, 2011, Davis City Council passed a Zero Waste Resolution, setting a new goal for Davis to achieve 75% recycling by 2020 by implementing zero waste strategies. This makes Davis the 1st city in the Sacramento region to adopt such a resolution! Go Davis! Link to the staff report.

To demonstrate the campus’ commitment to the waste diversion goals (like Zero Waste Events) set by the OCP, the UC Davis office of the Chancellor and Provost Policy and Procedure Manual (link) outlines the following policy goals:

  1. As a leader in the community, UC Davis is responsible for creating a culture of sustainability with regard to environmental policies and practices.

  2. UC Davis has established the following waste diversion goals:

    1. 50% by June 30, 2008.

    2. 75% by June 30, 2012.

    3. Ultimate goal of zero waste by 2020.
