Low Waste Initiative

In 2016, we were shocked by how much waste was generated during the week of CUCs. This time around the Edmonton local organizing committee is making the three Rs, reduce, reuse, and recycle, a priority! We have partnered with Green Event Services to have recycling and composting onsite. Our food vendors are supplying only compostable containers and utensils. But we still need your cooperation to reduce the items going to the landfill.

Help us and the environment out by:

  • Bringing reusable water bottles
  • Bringing reusable coffee mugs
  • Putting your waste in the appropriate containers (ask a volunteer if you are not sure)
  • Reusing your cutlery

If you have any other suggestions to feedback on how we can help make CUCs a greener event, let us know!
