3rd best in the worldThe University supported Wales Recycles’ Be Mighty. Recycle national campaign across three bursts in 2020/21 to help increase Wales’s recycling rates.

Wales Recycles’ post-campaign survey in March/April 2021 revealed a clear link between recognition of the campaign and enhanced recycling behaviours amongst Welsh citizens. This has helped to drive positive behaviour with over 50% saying they’ve done some things differently and 46% saying they recycle more than they were six months ago after seeing the campaign.

We’re asking everyone to ‘Step it Up’ this Recycle Week, which takes place from 20th to 26th September, and recycle as much as you can to help tackle climate change.

As part of Recycle Week and the Marine Conservation Society’s Great British Beach Clean week, you can join the Sustainability team for a beach clean on Thursday 23rd September at Swansea Bay. Register via Eventbrite.

Find out how you can increase your recycling efforts in the office and at home on Sustainability’s waste web pages and on the Wales Recycles website.
