In 2018/19 the University produced over 1600 tonnes of general and recyclable waste, which cost approximately £240,000 in disposal costs.

We intend to reduce waste across the campus by 10% by 2021.

A recent Student Social Impact Survey revealed that students wanted to be better with waste and recycling, but didn't understand how so we ran a bin signage competition open to staff and students to design new bin signage. "Puzzled?" was the winner with an 84.4% effectiveness rate.

This new bin signage has now been rolled out across the campus and improved accurate recycling from 23.5% to 36.9% in just 1 month!
