A load of rubbish

Over 200 tonnes of office paper, 27 tonnes of cardboard, 30 mobile phones and hundreds of items of computer equipment were recycled by the University in 2001. Mobile phones and accessories are sent for recycling and reconditioning to the charity Child Advocacy International. Computer equipment is sent to the local authority-supported initiative Roseville Enterprises, for recycling or restoration and then sold or donated to charity.

As well as the environmental benefits of increased recycling, it also saves the University money through reduced refuse collection and landfill tax charges. Cleaning services co-ordinate recycling initiatives, and they are currently looking to set up a scheme to recycle glass.
