Why has “Bin the Bin” been introduced?

The Bin the Bin scheme provides a range of benefits to the University as a whole and the wider world.

Firstly, we as a University have a commitment to take responsibility of our waste and to ensure that our disposal of this is as conscientious as possible. By introducing a DMR stream into each office, we are increasing the amount of waste that we recycle, which is a key factor in sustainability, whilst reducing the amount of waste we send to landfill. This scheme will also dramatically reduce the number of plastic bags that we buy and throw away.

Secondly, we are committed to investing in our students and investing in all of our futures: this involves investing in our environment. By introducing this scheme we are setting a good example to our students and to other universities that we are mindful of how we use and dispose of valuable resources.
