Zero Waste Concordia

Zero Waste Concordia is a community-driven program run out of Facilities Management helping Concordians reach the University’s Zero Waste goals: diverting 90% of materials from the landfill and reducing our waste by 50%. We offer zero waste event support, fulfill waste bin requests, and run a reusable container sharing program. We also support initiatives like Concordia Precious Plastics Project (CP3), the Concordia University Centre for Creative Reuse (CUCCR), and Digitizing Waste. Our volunteers help at zero waste events by providing reusable containers, giving sorting instructions, collecting surplus food, and helping set up effective waste bins and signage. They also help maintain our waste bins, tag photos of waste, and educate the community on waste sorting. If you’re excited about sustainability and waste reduction, we can’t wait to have you join our team!

Concordia University Centre for Creative Reuse

CUCCR diverts materials from Concordia’s waste-stream, offering them to the general community for free. Sustainability Ambassadors at CUCCR help the team sort and display new items, chat with community members entering the space to help them find what they need and get connected to the sustainability community, weigh items as guests check out, and research creative ways to reuse or maintain everyday items to share with peers in person and virtually. By the end of the year, you will have created at least 2 educational posts for CUCCR’s social media, have created strong connections with regular visitors, and helped organize and facilitate a Don’t Buy That event!
