Recycling and disposing of other waste
If you're a member of staff or a student, you can recycle a large number of items on campus or arrange for the Estates team to collect other types of waste.
Recycling on campus
You can use recycling bins across the University to recycle a variety of things, including:
- coffee cups
Find out more about recycling your waste.
Throwing away general waste
You can find general waste bins around campus for rubbish that can't be recycled.
Removing office equipment
If you're a member of staff and need to move to a new office or clear out your work area, we can help you move furniture and other equipment.
Moving to a new office
If you need help moving items, contact your building's Portering team who will assess what needs to be moved and let you know about any possible charges.
Getting rid of unwanted items
If you have any University-owned items, like office furniture or printer paper, that you don't need, you can advertise them on the Swap Shop.
If you'd like to give away or sell personal items, you can use Noticeboard.
Destroying confidential waste
If you need to dispose of any confidential, sensitive, or personal paper, you can have it shredded.
Find out how to safely get rid of confidential paper waste.
Disposing of hazardous waste
Read the hazardours waste management policy to make sure you know what kind of waste is defined as 'hazardous', who has responsibility for it, and how it should be stored and removed.
Arrange a hazardous waste collection
To arrange a collection of hazardous waste, email the Waste team at firstname.lastname@example.org
If the Hazard Waste Manager approves your request, we will arrange a time with you to collect the waste from your building.
