Waste & Recycling
The Student Union is working in conjunction with the University in order to recycle as much waste as possible. Some of the things that are being done to address the issue of waste can be seen by walking round Campus. There are a number of recycling bins on campus and by accommodation which collect the following items…
• Food&Drink Cans
The SU is reducing the amount of waste that its offices produce, many bins have been removed from the Unions offices and a central waste management area has been established for recycling. At the campus shop a facility has been put in place that means you can recycle all old inkjet cartridges and mobile phones. The SU Bars similarly recycles all of its glass bottles that it uses as well.
All Computer labs on campus also have a paper recycling facility, in conjunction with this, the University is in the process of reducing the amount of paper that the printers print out, all printing is by default set to be double sided, and soon the header that accompanies all printing jobs will be removed which will vastly reduce the amount of paper that the printers use.
