Reducing waste

'Bin the Bin' means the removal of all desk side bins and the upgrading to blue recycling bins partnered with black general waste bins.

As part of our commitment to sustainability a ‘Bin the Bin’ initiative has already been adopted by various areas of the College including the Faculty Building. This initiative has been very successful.

The objectives

  • Improve the quality and volume of recycled material.
  • Reduce the amount of waste going to landfill or incineration.
  • Comply with legislation by pre-treating our waste.
  • Reduce landfill tax and costs.
  • Drive down cleaning time and costs.
  • Minimise the amount of desk side bin liners thrown away.

This initiative has been a resounding success with other large organisations and universities, creating a 20% increase in rates of recycling.

This is also in line with the College’s Carbon Management Programme and supported by the College’s Management Team.
