Residual Waste

There isn’t much that you can’t recycle on campus; however there are still a few items which need to be disposed of as General Waste.

These are typically items made from more than one material such as:

  • Crisp packets
  • Chocolate bar wrappers
  • Sandwich boxes made from cardboard with a plastic window
  • Laminated paper

We are charged a premium rate for any waste that we do not recycle, so please ensure that you recycle as much of your waste as possible.

Energy from Waste Plant

All of our general waste is taken away by O'Brien's Waste Management and transported to Teesside where it is processed to produce energy. Our general waste is used to supply electricity to the grid and none of it goes to landfill - which is a massive step in the right direction.
