Recycling

S002

Almost everything can be recycled here at the University so put it all in the recycling bins!

This includes all plastics (including carrier bags, cling film, food packets and bottles), all paper and card (including tetra packs), and all cans, tins and foil.

Glass is recycled separately – why not take any glass bottles home to be recycled in your household recycling!

Put food waste in a food caddie for composting!

Reuse schemes

S002

Please edit this area to advertise all reuse schemes you have in place.

This could include envelopes, furniture, stationary or any other creative initiatives you have to reuse waste!

You should also have a system for staff or students to donate or swap their own household items with others

S008

Save on air conditioning – wear light, loose clothing

During summer, wear appropriate summer clothing made from natural fibres to keep cool!

Don’t cool the room below 24 degrees – costs increase by 10-12% for every 1 degree cooling – nearly £100 a year!

Put on a jumper instead of turning up the heating!

S007

S008

Make sure you wrap up this winter – by turning down the thermostat 1 degree you can save £65 and 260kg Carbon Dioxide a year per room

Heat no higher than 21 degrees!

Switch it off!

S011

PCs and Monitors should be switched off overnight.

Or set your computer to automatically shut down after 30 minutes if nobody is logged on.

You should also be turning off your monitor if you are away from your desk for more than 5 minutes – screensavers don’t save energy!

Take the stairs!

S012

Lifts are major energy users so help reduce your carbon footprint by taking the stairs instead.

You’ll also be helping yourself keep fit!

Burn calories, not electricity!

Dripping tap?

S020

A dripping tap wastes 5,000 litres of water a year – that’s enough to make around 20,000 cups of tea!
