Furniture reuse at University of Bradford

Tags: reuse | furniture | Bradford


The University of Bradford isn’t only teaching students to be green – it’s actively doing its bit too.

A big refurbishment programme carried out by Bradford University saw students re-housed in newly furnished accommodation. Two massive clear-outs, covering 280 student rooms, went ahead in Summer and Autumn 2007, which left the University staff with a headache. As an 'Eco-Versity' with a sustainability policy, they wanted to keep waste to a minimum but finding outlets to get the items reused was not easy.
