Campus Race to Zero Waste 2022!

CSB & SJU participate annually in a nationwide competition that challenges our campus to reduce as much waste as possible from January 31st through March 27th.

Waste Wednesdays on our Instagram

Our awesome Maya will be putting together extra information on waste every Wednesday! Be sure to follow us on Instagram @csbsjusustainability and watch our instagram story.


Come find our Staff team on scheduled tabling days and locations (check the schedule) for more information on refusing, reducing, reusing, recycling, and more!
