  • RecycleMania Basketball Games: Sustainable Stanford partnered with Stanford Athletics, PSSI and Athletics Concessions to host RecycleMania Game Day Challenges. Featuring recycling trivia and videos, Stanford earned specific credit for the game day challenges.  
  • Sustainable Organics Solutions Facility TourWednesday, March 2, 11:00am  (with travel time 10:30am-12:30pm)
    Stanford takes food rich loads to this facility to be processed into a high quality and nutrient rich mash for use as a key ingredient in non-ruminant animal feed.  90% of the materials collected in clean loads become feed meal/water/FOG (fats, oils, grease) and 10% becomes compost.  Different from composting, this process reuses the valuable nutrients in the uneaten or inedible portion of our food. Visitors were able to see firsthand how it gets done
  • Recycling Center Tours: Visit the Stanford Recycling Center to learn about how Stanford's recyclables are collected and sorted here on campus.  Please send an e-mail to confirm your attendance.
