Waste

 

Workplace recycling is changing.

From 6 April 2024 it will become law for all businesses, charities, and public sector organisations to sort their waste for recycling. The Welsh Government is introducing this law to improve the quality and quantity of how we collect and separate waste.

 

What waste needs to be separated?

To help with the separation of waste, new bins will be installed across the campus as well as updates to existing bins. This will create three separate waste streams in most corridors in buildings across the site where there had previously been two. Dry mixed recycling will become two separate waste streams; Paper/card and Plastic/Metal.

 

Internal bins on site:

  • Blue for Paper/Card
  • Red for Plastic/ Metal
  • White for General waste
  • In kitchenets and break rooms there will also be food waste bins with a green label.

Kitchen bins within halls of residence:

  • Blue for Paper/Card
  • Red for Plastic/ Metal
  • White for General waste
  • Green for food waste

External bins on site:

  • Blue for Paper/Card
  • Red for Plastic/ Metal
  • White for General waste

In strategically selected bin stores around the campus there will be glass recycling bins.
