Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

Choosing to reduce, reuse, and recycle not only prevents pollution but will sustain the environment for future generations. The most effective way to reduce waste is to minimize and be more conscious of what we put into the planet. WIth your help and participation, CSUSB can become more waste free campus.


Guess what? Certain electronics are also reusable! Got a keyboard or monitor sitting around your office collecting dust? Donate it! Contact your ITS Department to discuss your donation options.

Consider making a Small Paw Pledge today to reduce, reuse and recycle.
