Waste Leics!

Waste Leics is the University's behaviour change initiative that is focused on reducing our consumption of water, waste and energy.

#WasteLeics encourages staff and students to be more responsible in their consumption during everyday life. This covers different environmental management areas such as waste, energy, water and travel.


We have already met our waste management 2020 targets to achieve 50% on-site segregation of waste for recycling (by weight) and 95% diversion from landfill (by weight).


We are continuing to reduce our emissions and have already reduced emissions despite growing in size.


We are working to reduce our energy consumption and achieve the government legislation for net zero carbon by 2050.
