Don't forget to recycle your cups!

Published on 06/09/2010 by news_admin

A new paper cup recycling scheme is being launched across all campuses in September 2010. Instead of polystyrene cups, the College has begun purchasing paper cups which can be recycled throughout the college using the new cup recycling bins. The paper cups will then be collected and recycled by the charity Save a Cup.

This new recycling initiative is aimed to divert waste from landfill as catering currently purchases approximately 230,000 disposable cups each year. By recycling the paper cups the College stands to prevent thousands of non biodegradable polystyrene being sent to landfill.
