Zero Waste

Zero waste is widely defined as diverting over 90% of waste from the landfill, which takes collaborative effort by all building users. The zero waste movement at Haas goes far beyond our diversion rate. We are constantly reimagining, redesigning, and redefining the way sustainability is integrated into our buildings and lifestyles at Haas, on the wider Berkeley campus, and beyond.

We are committed to leading the way in zero waste infrastructure, as can be seen at Chou Hall, the first TRUE Zero Waste Certified academic building in the world.   Now, Cheit Hall is the second zero waste building on the UC Berkeley campus.
