2. IN THE BEGINNING…… In some cases departments were using the same contractor but paying different rates. Not centralised in any way, although Facilities did deal with the general waste. Facilities was working with a number of different contractors. In some cases departments were using the same contractor but paying different rates.

3. A NEW APPROACH Was also a few months into my post and one of the first objectives I set was To improve waste and recycling To consolidate service so that it is run by a main contractor Seemed that accurate measures had to be the way forward with the rising costs of landfill etc.Was also a few months into my post and one of the first objectives I set was To improve waste and recycling To consolidate service so that it is run by a main contractor Seemed that accurate measures had to be the way forward with the rising costs of landfill etc.

4. BENEFITS OF PAY-BY-WEIGHT Primary advantage is that you are no longer paying to have bins emptied when they have nothing in them but fresh air! Data is correlated from invoices which now provide a breakdown of costs into rent of containers, cost of collection – based on weight, cost of transport to disposal sites, and costs of landfill. The combination of this type of contract and good recycling means we have an average annual save of 10% of the waste budget. Have to consider that it is not always the best solution to reduce bins and lifts and this must be done in a considered way. Always worth looking at bin content as just because it is showing low tonnage does not always mean it is not full. Also do not want ground dumping to occur.

5. MANAGEMENT FIGURES 99 - 06 A snap shot of the tutorial wheelie bin cost and the main skip costs. Savings have dipped this last year, mainly due to a new campus coming on board and the start of a new recycling project for plastic. What is apparent is that even with the rising cost of waste management we are spending virtually no more than in previous years if not less. This is due to tighter management using the pay by weight system. A snap shot of the tutorial wheelie bin cost and the main skip costs.

6. ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS Website – helps foster a greater sense of awareness and this promotes ownership amongst staff and students. Better communications in house – Enviro’ office works more closely with Procurement office and other university departments to encourage resource efficiency and better management of waste streams.

7. WASTE & RECYCLING TONNAGE 99 - 06 Over this period we have produce an average of 922 tonnes of waste per year and 132 tonnes of that has been recycled each year. This is a steady average of 14.3% recyclate. Over this period we have produce an average of 922 tonnes of waste per year and 132 tonnes of that has been recycled each year.

8. RECYCLING PROJECTS Redundant IT kit bound for Ghana Also may include old library books Sports Kit So far over 1,000 PC’s have been donated Datalink Charity providing IT equipment to schools and colleges in rural Ghana. To date the charity has trained over 1 million people to become computer literate. Datalink Charity providing IT equipment to schools and colleges in rural Ghana.

9. OTHER RECYCLING PROJECTS Recycling for glass, cans, paper and plastic on all Halls of Residence Site wide paper and cardboard recycling Selected glass and plastic recycling Toner and Print Cartridge recycling Mobile Phone Recycling DSRL – Partnership with local council Toner & Print – Through XMA our supplier and our Print Unit Mobile Phone Recycling – VOICE UK DSRL – Partnership with local council Toner & Print – Through XMA our supplier and our Print Unit Mobile Phone Recycling – VOICE UK

10. HOW IS THE PROJECT MANAGED?

11. POLICY EXERTS

12. OPERATIONAL ASPECTS The A Team – a dedicated group of cleaning staff responsible for waste and recycling on our main campus and university wide

13. OPERATIONAL ASPECTS CONT’

14. CREATING OWNERSHIP Using a dedicated environmental website provides information on how staff should manage their waste and recycling. Also acts as a central place where anyone can go for updated information on all things environmental.

15. EDUCATION

16. EDUCATION & AWARENESS Targeted publicity High Impact Educational High Profile Operational aspects include shared responsibility for the management of the bins. As they were co-funded by our Caterers they have been given partial responsibility for some of the recycling stations. Also involved the SU Bar. Having pioneered pay by weight in 1999, derby has managed to produce a waste management system that allows constant improvement. It may be an old adage but you can’t manage it if you can’t measure it”. Recycling projects are growing from year to year – demand does often outstrip supply! What is clear is that it is expected and more the “norm” amongst ALL STAFF. Operational aspects include shared responsibility for the management of the bins.
