Moving towards zero waste

Information on the London School of Economics' HEFCE-funded project, moving towards zero waste.  

It focuses on end-of-term reuse schemes in student halls of residence within the LSE and in seven partner universities in England.

Every student in university halls of residence generates between 10-20 kg of reusable items per year, including stationery, kitchen appliances, books, clothes and bedding. Often these things are thrown away at the end of term, although many are in very good condition. The project ensures items are diverted from landfill and continue to be used.
