Don't know where to throw? Find exactly where your waste should go with the new UVA Waste Directory.

This new search tool allows the University community to search for a given item (like batteries, pizza boxes, food scraps, etc.) and determine how and where to dispose of it properly.

The UVA Waste Directory — created by the Office for Sustainability — will increase the University's landfill diversion rate, decrease contamination in recycling and compost, increase reuse, and ultimately help UVA reach our goal of reducing waste by 70% (relevant to 2010 levels) by 2030.
