load of rubbish
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.
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.
