University waste is segregated into various streams (see table below) to assist with onward recycling. It will greatly aid the University in achieving its recycling targets and reducing CO2 emissions, if waste is correctly allocated to the relevant stream and cross-contamination avoided.
|Type of Waste Stream||Colour of Bin/Lid/Signage||Location of Bin(s)|
|Mixed Recyclates (magazines; paper; books; cardboard; plastic bottles; food & drink cans)||Orange/Red||External|
|Glass (jars & bottles)||Turquoise||External|
|Food (vegetable peelings; cooked food; raw food; meat waste; tea-bags/coffee grounds||Green||External|
For items that could potentially be re-used or recycled, please refer to ‘Recycle furniture or other items’.
