Humboldt is comitted to zero waste, a strategy that takes a 'whole systems' approach to eliminate the volume and toxicity of waste going to the landfill. Zero waste encourages source reduction, materials re-use, composting and recycling.

Per State law, any single-use food packaging must be locally compostable or recyclable. 

Most event organizers at Humboldt are now making their events zero waste! Download the Zero Waste Events Checklist for guidelines to get your event Zero Waste Certified.

Thank you for your commitment to Humboldt's Zero waste goal!

If your event will be attended by 2,000 or more people with food served, State law requires that any leftover edible food be donated to a food recovery organization.  The Oh Snap! food pantry on campus and Food For People are two food recovery organizations that accept edible food donations.

All State Supported University groups are not typically charged for these Facilities Management services. Auxiliary Units and Off Campus entities will be charged for services provided.
