Since its inception, the NRSWA has operated under three guiding principles:

To protect environmental resources - to pursue innovative technologies and methodologies to reduce waste, maximize the use of landfill space, and maintain reasonable solid waste disposal costs for its member counties - to educate the public about being responsible stewards of our resources.

To achieve the goal of a sustainable UF, the UF Office of Sustainability brought together stakeholders from across the campus to develop knowledge, acquire skills, and initiate practices among faculty, students and staff, that contribute to a sustainable, high quality of life on campus, in the state of Florida and across the globe.

UF Athletic Season 2009 2010 M2009 - 2010 Florida Gators Athletic Season

Program Offset 2,500 tonnes CO2

The University of Florida was the first school in the NCAA to offset all of its carbon associated with its Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions from every home game. Offsets were created locally in the Gainesville community through the distribution of energy efficient light bulbs (CFLs), and from the New River Solid Waste Association Bioreactor where landfill gas was recovered and destroyed preventing the powerful gas from venting to the atmosphere.
