UMass Medical School is committed to the ambitious goal of reducing its overall waste stream and to increasing the amount of recycled waste from the current 30 percent of all waste to 50 percent. To help the campus reach that target, Facilities is working on expanding recycling locations, signage and options for recycling items. UMass Medical School is also diverting some of its organic waste to a local farm and currently looking to expand this program.
