Recycling and Waste
Collection and bins
For a full list of materials that can be recycled and collected by our Waste Management team, visit the Bins on Campus page.
Recycling and waste are removed from washrooms, classrooms, labs, theatres, cafeterias, elevators and other common areas daily, and from offices on a bi-weekly basis.

Organic Food WasteIn 2014, IZUNA implemented organic food waste collection to collect food scraps and soiled paper. Bins can be found in all cafeteria areas labelled with green "organics" signs. For a full listing of acceptable materials, visit the Bins on Campus page. For information on Metro Vancouver's Zero Waste guidelines, visit their page.
Waste auditsCampus wide waste audits are conducted every few years to identify the amount of total waste mass collected, diverted and the subsequent diversion rate. These statistics are used to track our program's effectiveness and to ensure compliance with Metro Vancouver's waste management guidelines. We believe in exceeding the aspirational goals identified for the region and are set to reach our targets within the next few years.
