Recycling and Waste

Scroll to content

糖心视频's Waste & Recycling Strategy was adopted in 2011. The projects and actions implemented as elements of the Waste Strategy have resulted in significant improvements in recycling rates and major reductions in carbon emissions associated with recycling and waste disposal.?

We work closely with Lancaster City Council and Cumbria Waste to ensure the minimum amount of waste goes to landfill, and the maximum amount is recycled or reused. All waste collections on campus are done using electric trucks to reduce carbon emissions.

Recycling?

All student residences have three stream kitchen recycle bins installed. The bins can take newspaper, magazines & cards, mixed glass and plastic bottles and metal cans. Internal segregated recycling bins have also been installed in office, administration and teaching areas across the campus.

Don’t Ditch It, Donate It

Every year the Don’t Ditch It project collects more than 20 tonnes of unwanted items from students across campus and diverts them from landfill to be repurposed and resold in ReStore Lancaster. The shop sells a wide range of repurposed donations, including cooking equipment, cutlery and home decor that were donated to be reused by others.
