Recycling and waste projects

The waste generated from University activities has a significant impact on the environment and on society. The University aims to manage waste effectively by following the waste hierarchy to minimise waste generated, maximise the potential of materials through reuse, increase recycling and choosing energy recovery rather than landfill for final disposal.

We've implemented several initiatives over the years aimed at reducing consumption and therefore waste generation as well as introducing reuse schemes and campaigns to increase recycling levels. Some of the most successful projects have been from student and staff led ideas and ongoing involvement.
