Recycling ‘Tip of the Week’

Please don’t put paper cups, cans or plastic bottles with unconsumed drinks into the GREEN Dry Mixed Recyclable bins. The liquids will contaminate the dry recyclables and all the contents will then have to be processed as non-recyclables incurring a significant additional cost to College.  


Notice to all Staff

We appeal to staff to comply with the waste segregation arrangements on Campus. We are losing significant quantities of recyclable materials due to contamination. Waste segregation starts at your desk or work station and is the responsibility of the individual. All waste bins and containers are clearly marked so selecting the correct disposal unit is simple. College will be paying financial penalties from now on unless we eliminate contamination of recyclables and increase the recycling rate.
