Sustainable Campus



There will always be a fraction of our waste that we cannot recycle. That doesn't mean that all of this waste must end up in a landfill.

General waste

Our contractor takes our non-recyclables and bails it to create a Refuse Derived Fuel. This RDF is then burnt in Energy from Waste plants to generate heat and power.


If you are having a clear-out or have lots of rubble, scrap or other materials to dispose of, you can order a skip from the University waste contractor.

Please note that all skips must be enclosed and locked when not being used.

Prices for skip hire

A flat haulage rate of £68.96 will be charged, plus tonnage dependent on the waste stream.

All prices are exclusive of VAT.

Waste Type
