The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations stimulated Nottingham Trent University (NTU) to reduce the amount of waste generated and to manage the residue more effectively. Waste generation has been reduced by a number of ways, such as increasing the refresh cycle for IT equipment from 3 to 5 years and standardising specifications to facilitate exchange.
Moreover, through a charity, equipment in working order is refurbished and then either sold at discounted rates or donated to local community projects and education schemes in developing countries.
