****************************
UC Regents have expanded their Sustainability Policy...

"In the area of recycling and waste management, for example, UC voluntarily
adopts the following waste diversion goals: 50 percent by June 30, 2008; 75
percent by June 30, 2012 and the
ultimate goal of zero waste by 2020. All
campuses will develop an integrated waste management plan and funding
mechanism by June 30, 2007, according to the UC policy."

The UC Office of the President on Monday unveiled the long-awaited policy to
further minimize the University's impact on the environment and reduce its
dependence on non-renewable energy.
