Recycle your used and unwanted pens

Bring your old biros, whiteboard pens, permanent markers, felt tips and Tippex pots to 4W 2.13 to be recycled.

Wondering what to do with your old pens? Help us to reduce the amount of waste created by writing materials and bring along your empty or unwanted items to 4W 2.13.

We can accept any of the following:

  • biros (any style or brand)
  • whiteboard pens
  • permanent markers
  • felt tips
  • Tippex/ correction fluid pots

The Department of Mathematical Sciences has been recycling pens with Terracycle for some time now and are looking to expand the scheme. We hope that in the near future there will be many collection points across the University.

Get involved

If you have any questions or would like to set up your own collection point please contact Myla Watts, Department Coordinator for Mathematical Sciences.
