What can go in the bins?

You will have received guidance on what is and is not acceptable for disposal in the DMR.

DMR bin:

  • All forms of paper
  • Card and cardboard
  • Steel and aluminium cans
  • Plastic bottles
  • Plastic films
  • Hard plastic including food containers

Please ensure all materials are clean and dry.

Plastics with codes 1 - 6 are accepted.

General waste bin:

  • Non-recyclable office waste e.g. crisp packets

Please use the correct waste stream for each item of rubbish. Contamination of DMR will result in the whole bin having to be disposed of as general waste to landfill.

Food waste:

We aim to eventually introduce food waste bins to offices and student accommodation. Please see 'Are there any food waste facilities?' below.

Please dispose of your glass, hazardous, chemical and confidential waste as normal. Please ensure that only documents that involve data, personal or sensitive information are disposed of as confidential waste.
