UCLA Changes Zero Waste Initiative To Zero Waste Receptacles Initiative

WESTWOOD — After realizing that their Zero Waste Initiative was not going to be accomplished by 2020, UCLA Sustainability has revised their goal into the Zero Waste Receptacles Initiative. “I mean, let’s be honest, eliminating trash cans is way easier than eliminating actual trash,” said Zack Wilkins, who recently remembered he was the head of the Zero Waste Project. “Now we’re just methodically taking out all the trash cans on campus so people have no choice but to recycle or compost their garbage. Don’t get me wrong, it was fun watching people awkwardly stand at the bin for way too long as they desperately tried to figure out which compartment their waste belongs in, but now they can just toss it in without looking!” At press time, UCLA Sustainability was seen celebrating their now achievable goal as students tossed non-biodegradable polystyrene into composting bins.
