In 2006 recycling at UTS was not working with recovery rates stuck around 25%. Against this backdrop UTS moved to co-mingled general waste in 2007 and focused on introducing diverse and sometimes innovative recycling strategies for materials not captured by the co-mingled system including styrofoam, e-waste, fluoro bulbs, batteries, e-waste and furniture. Through targeted staff and student behaviour change programs recycling rates for virtually all streams are now over 82%.
