Improving Waste Sorting on Campus

Following the appointment of the new waste contractors (AWM) in summer, Sustainability Services, together with Cleaning Services and the FD Marketing and Communications team been working together to simplify the waste sorting and recycling that is performed at site. The new look and feel brings our recycling messaging in line with the national WRAP standards of imagery and colour schemes. The new labels can be seen on bins across campus and will be supported by clearer communications online and a soon to launch ‘hearts and minds’ campaign that will resonate with our students, staff and visitors.

Janet Willis, Cleaning Services Manager said, “We have set ourselves challenging waste sorting and recycling targets and the new labelling system and supporting campaign will help improve our recycling rates and overall effectiveness.”
