For students living in halls of residence, the University provides recycling and residual waste bags, which should be placed in the appropriate recycling stations located in the kitchens. Waste compounds are available across halls and are colour coded in line with the bins within the kitchens.
It’s your responsibility to ensure rubbish is disposed of correctly. Not doing so can annoy neighbours, attract vermin and could incur a fine from your local council.
Further information on your individual collection dates can be obtained from your local council’s website.
