CSUB makes every effort to reduce waste. Here are a few initiatives that we have in place:

BARC Partnership to increase recycling:

CSUB has purchased numerous recycle bins that are distributed throughout campus.  CSUB has established a partnership with the Bakersfield Association of Retarded Citizens (BARC), where BARC employees empty our recyclables on a weekly basis and divert the materials from entering the landfill. 

National Recyclemania Competition:

CSUB competes with colleges and universities nationwide to see which university can recycle the most materials. In the 2014 Recyclemania competition, CSUB recycled 2.17 pounds of recyclables per person. To learn more about Recyclemania and how to get involved, click CSUB Recycles.
