Waste Management and Recycling

We are working to minimise waste that is sent to landfill and to increase the proportion of waste that is recycled.

All buildings have separate bins for recycling and landfill waste. Separate bins are also used in staff offices. Food waste bins are being trialled in accommodation buildings, Garden and Christina Barratt Building.

Single-use plastics are being phased out in both the Dining Hall and guest room packs. Water stations have been installed in both the Dining Hall and Anniversary Building for refilling of water bottles. We provide reusable water bottles at events and conferences. Single-use cups for water are no longer available on the College site, and from 1 October 2021 we will stop using single-use cups for hot drinks, instead providing returnable cups and encouraging the use of our ‘keep-cups’.

We have greatly reduced the amount of printing and have paper recycling points throughout college. We also offer white boards to conference clients as an alternative to flip charts.
