The goal of the Sustainability and Recycling Program at MUSC is to reduce the environmental impact of our campus by advancing energy efficiency, water conservation and encouraging recycling.

Last year, MUSC recycled 27% of total solid waste.

Guiding departments and units to reduce waste and helping them to conserve resources is our mission while we continue to increase the proportion of waste that is recycled.
