There is a mixed recycling bin in all kitchens with a clear plastic liner. This is for:
• Card (except contaminated/used pizza boxes)
• Plastic cups, bottles, cartons, yoghurt pots etc.
• Drinks cans, food cans, aluminium trays and foil
• Domestic aerosol cans (not hazardous sprays such as insecticides)
• Clean food packaging.
Food waste can be put in the caddies provided in each kitchen. Please do not put oil or food down the sinks as this will cause blockages.
Glass can be placed into the kitchen/pantry glass sack to enable you carry your empty glass bottles and containers to your nearest waste/recycling pen.
You and your fellow residents are responsible for taking out the recycling as well as general and food waste to the waste collection area nearest to your Hall. Details of your nearest waste area is displayed on your kitchen or pantry notice board.
General waste should go in the general waste bin with a black plastic liner including sweet and chocolate wrappers, crisp packets and polystyrene.
