CUCCR is a Concordia wide initiative that collects and diverts usable materials from the university waste-stream, making them available to the Concordia Community for free.

CUCCR has grown significantly with over 2700 members, saving over $230,000 while diverting 30 metric tonnes of free materials from Concordia’s waste stream. They helped develop the Zero Waste Plan and program and have been integrated into facilities management for waste diversion. 

Approved funding: $45,000

Waste Not, Want Not mission is to help the community compost, sort and decrease waste at Concordia University. Since WNWN launched in September 2016, the Concordia community doubled its annual composting, and each Concordian reduced their annual overall waste by 16%- the equivalent of two months worth of garbage that disappeared per person every year (view data). They have now transformed into a BCorp social enterprise, enuf, to achieve two goals: first to continue working at Concordia long term, and thanks to three-year contracts with both the CSU and the GSA they are able to do just that. Second is to scale this progress across Montreal. They are now working with boroughs, event venues, and the English Montreal School board.

Approved funding: $35,000
