One aspect of the Zero Waste goal is increasing reuse of materials on campus, so they are not sent to a landfill.

UNC has many programs that encourage reuse. Carolina already minimizes the waste produced with reusable take-out containers and mugs from CDS and dishware and utensils you can rent for your next CDS-catered event. In addition, UNC Surplus takes any item that a department has outgrown or no longer uses and sells the usable merchandise to other campus departments, students and to the public.
