Find out more about it, and how you can help to save the planet and support recycling!

As a University community of more than 24,000 students and staff combined, our recycling actions on campus and at home can make a really big impact! The University provides facilities for waste items to be segregated on campus to ensure that items are recycled more efficiently.

We diverted 64% of all waste generated on campus during the 2019-20 academic year away from landfill and energy recovery, by reusing items, recycling, and sending our food waste to be produced into bio-gas and bio-fertiliser. We are continually working with our waste management contractors to improve our reuse and recycling of resources.

Minimising waste production, increasing reuse and segregating waste for closed loop recycling supports the circular economy and helps us view waste as a resource. As such, waste minimisation and resource efficiency are key operational focuses of the University’s Sustainability and Climate Emergency Strategy 2021-2025 and supports the work of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals 2030; to: “substantially reduce waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.” (more…)
