Recycling at USC is not limited to paper and bottles. Food composting is an important part of minimizing university waste. Actually, most USC cafes and dining areas compost. In 2013, approximately 452 tons of university food waste was composted instead of being thrown out as trash. The FMS Waste Management unit is responsible for the compactors and bins used to collect this food waste.
They take out the trash, literally. The FMS Waste Management unit is responsible for all waste removal from USC. And since 1994 they have done this while diverting more than half of it from landfills, making them an important part of USC sustainability efforts.
Every year the FMS Waste Management unit bales 500 tons of white paper and 200 tons of mixed paper, including cardboard.
Coming Soon! New Electronic Survey
In our ongoing efforts to maintain top quality customer service, the FMS Customer Resource Center is launching a new electronic survey. The survey will replace the Door Hanger Program, which asked customers to provide feedback via a paper questionnaire. Now customers will be able to give feedback electronically, making it easier to do so after a service is complete. Customers will also be able to evaluate specific FMS shops.
