Waste on Campus

Divert 75

With state-mandated AB 341, Divert 75 was created to divert 75% of our total waste away from our landfill and into more sustainable options such as composting, recycling, and reusing. Recycling ♻ bins can be found throughout the campus.

Green Energy and Buildings on Campus


We aim to be energy and green conscious in our building to strive for a healthy space we work and learn. The Horticulture Department greenhouse facilities includes photo-voltaic panels - allowing light to pass through for the plants while also generating clean energy.


Lights in the buildings are motion censored. This helps reduce energy use.
