Sustainability is a core value at Stanford, which the university prioritizes at operational and programmatic levels.
Recycling & Composting
To support the university’s effort of achieving zero waste by 2030, Redwood City buildings feature centralized waste, recycle and compost collection bins and paper towel composting in bathrooms. Some break rooms have reusable dishes and utensils while all have certified compostable single use cups and utensils.
