Welcome to Associated Students Recycling, a UCSB student-run organization! We play an active role in campus waste management and in teaching students about how they can reduce what they send to the landfill. Our campus currently has a 70% waste diversion rate and although this percentage is fairly high, our goal is to have a zero-waste campus by 2020.

We’ve designed our site to be an informational resource about our services to the campus community and about recycling and composting regulations, best practices, and project ideas. We’re always happy to help, so please contact us if you have any questions!
