One of the strategies regarding the purchasing, waste, and recycling targets put forth in the iCAP Portal is setting and enforcing minimum recycled content standards.

The targets for purchasing, waste, and recycling are to adopt a long-term Zero Waste campus policy by 2011 and increasing waste diversion to 75 percent by 2020. By setting and enforcing minimum recycled content standards within purchasing, the University can greatly reduce the number of environmentally irresponsible products they purchase.
