Department of Land Economy

Environment, Law & Economics

Both the University and our Department take waste and recycling very seriously.

There are three main targets:

  • To send zero non-hazardous waste to landfill by 2020.

  • To achieve continuous year-on-year reductions in waste arising per FTE staff and students.

  • To recycle at least 95% of total waste produced at the University by 2016.

Before our building was closed last March due to the Coronavirus lockdowns, we ran frequent awareness campaigns with recycling posters across in all areas of the building including kitchen areas.  Paper recycling bins were located in corridors and mixed recycling bins in the kitchens.  There were also recycling and reusing collections arranged for print cartridges, batteries and stationery.

Now that all staff and students are currently working remotely, they are still encouraged to consider how they personally reduce waste and recycle at home.  The University's Spotlight on Campaign for the Lent Term 2021 has been Waste, and partcularly the reduction of single use plastic.  For more information see the Sustainability Team's webpages:  Recycling and Waste
