Why Care about Sustainability?


- According to EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), to create and maintain conditions under
which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, that permit fulfilling the social,
economic and other requirements of present and future generations.
- Landfill practices on Davis: The city of Davis practices in (1) composting through elimination of
organics, (2) recycling focusing on plastic, metals, glass and (3) recycling paper separately and
(4) garbage with the emphasis on eliminating hazardous waste

Proper Procedure for Trash Export (or other activity):


- UC Davis Dining Services looks critically and holistically at the resource and energy usages in
our operations. Taking a comprehensive approach, we continue to lead the campus community in
reducing landfill-bound waste by composting, recycling and reusing, as well as reducing our
water, energy, fuel and natural resource use and overall consumption. We are aligned with the
University of California, Davis campus goal of achieving zero-waste by 2020.
- At the CSC, waste focuses on 4 different trash bin colors/ types: (1) blue for recycling, (2) brown
for composting, (3) gray for cardboard paper recycling, and (4) black for general trash and
landfill.
Demonstration- Trash Pong: (interactive activity)
- Split classroom into four groups and designate pong balls designated that represent different
forms of trash/ waste (i.e. newspaper, pet waste, fruits and vegetables, etc.)
- Introduce the different trash bins on the the cardboard presentation that will indicate any of the
following: recycling, cardboard waste, general trash and compost; all in the form of disposable
cups
- Each trash bin will vary in point system, there will be small cups, as well as regular sized cups.
The points will vary between 100 to 500
