    On-campus recycling bins make it easier for you to reduce waste. Learn what you can recycle on campus and where to drop off other items within Kansas City.

    Community Park and Garden

    KCUMB’s Community Park and Garden provides the University an opportunity to grow and share nutritious foods with underserved populations while reaffirming a commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles. Students and employees can join the gardening group or the Community Garden Compost Program.

    Conservation Efforts

    Whether it's energy or resources, KCUMB aims to use only what it absolutely needs. By increasing the implementation of paperless systems, opting for products with less packaging and complying with LEED certification, we are diligently working toward diminishing our carbon footprint.
