Both the private and public sectors, including the university and college sector have a legal and social responsibility to promote and protect human health and the environment by safely, responsibly and efficiently managing and reducing waste and maximising waste reuse, recycling and resource generation opportunities.
As large organisations dealing with staff, student, visitor and supplier waste, institutions must contend with a host of operational waste issues, not least the increasing costs of disposal charges and landfill taxes but also the possible future requirement to measure and report scope 3 carbon emissions relating to waste through Estates Management Statistics and Emandate.
