Recycling and Waste Management

Reducing, reusing and recycling our waste at Trinity generates significant environmental and economic benefits.

The University's Waste Management procedures are based on the three R's of reduce, reuse & recycle, i.e. reduce the amount of waste that is produced in Trinity, reuse whatever materials we can and recycle whatever we can to ensure that the bare minimum of waste is sent to landfill. By following these procedures we can greatly reduce the amount of unnecessary waste produced by the University and make a considerable financial saving by reducing the amount of ever-increasing landfill charges the University has to pay.
