Recycling Roll Out: Plan May 2008

Tags: recycling | posters


Recycling is common practice across the UK with Local Authorities achieving up to 30 and 40 % recycling. People have adopted recycling behaviour at home and expect to be able to recycle the same materials at work.

A great deal of work has already been done in order to achieve a recycling rate of 26% (Jan 08) by paper and card alone. There has also been major progress made on the recycling scheme roll out which will give a foundation to what is to follow.

As an improved service to users, ESS will increase the amounts and types of materials that can be recycled on campus.
