Recycling

Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. Recycling is important to both the natural environment and us. We must act fast as the amount of waste we create is increasing all the time.


Homes for students want to do our bit to protect the world, and were sure you want to do your bit too, so to make being eco-friendly easy for you weve provided recycling and refuse bins throughout your accommodation and we encourage all students to use the facilities provided to recycle waste where possible.


You should make sure that you empty packages completely and give them a quick rinse before you recycle them. Below you can find examples of what you can recycle and what goes in the different bins.


Be aware that if you put things in the wrong bin, it will contaminate the whole waste load which means that we cannot send that waste to be recycled. So, please take an extra couple of seconds to put things in the correct bin so we can help divert as much waste from going to landfill as possible.


Almost anything made of glass can be recycled, so make sure you put items like glass bottles and jars in the right bin and do not recycle broken glass or light bulbs. Anything that does not feature a recycling label must be put in the refuse bin. Other items that are not recyclable include: batteries, electrical appliances, kitchen waste, polystyrene, foam and sanitary products.
