The lucky winners of March's Glass Recycling photo competition have been announced and aren't they a good looking bunch too!
If you live in halls make sure to put your recyclable glass into the glass recyling bins on campus, 100% of glass is recyclable!
Generating over 1000 tonnes of waste each year the uni remains committed to it’s “zero-waste-to-landfill” policy and has worked with the union to help separate and recover more of the useful materials from our rubbish. Meanwhile the uni’s other waste goes to produce electricity for the city, helping keep the lights on!
All students in Uni Halls now have a collection bag for their glass, whether its beer and wine bottles from the party animals or sauce or jam jars from the foodies, they can now all go into the glass bins by Spode, Clarice and Minton halls.
If you have any questions about recycling, bins or rubbish, contact Reslife or @SustainStaffs on Twitter.
We're looking forward to the summer when we the uni will be putting in even more recycling options for our halls students.
