changes to general waste
Changes to General Waste
  • Landfill Directive 2007
  • Company responsibility & what our users want to see
  • Currently working on waste tender
  • Hopefully the successful company in this tender will eventually be able to service all the College Group sites
hazardous waste
Hazardous Waste
  • 2 Hazardous waste licences
  • Although multiple sites we designate it waste from main site because this is where the contractor collects from
electrical lighting
Electrical / Lighting
  • Central storage area for WEEE items
  • Labelled to allow segregated storage of WEEE categories
  • Batteries included

  • Tubes are collected by the supplier
chemicals paint automotive
  • 6th form science currently have their own collection organised – developing chemical ‘strategy’

  • Goes to be recycled or reused for fuel
  • Collects from kitchens

Ink Cartridges

  • Great North East Air Ambulance
  • No Charge for collection
  • Central collection point
  • Stand alone wash baths
  • Contract directly with school


  • Stored for reuse if possible
  • If for disposal metal is separated
  • Local furniture re-use charity


  • Collected for recycling / redistribution
  • Library receives some revenue
  • Learning development process their waste through wormeries, which were funded by the LSC
  • Other site has compost bays

Food – future

  • Investigated food waste collection – not economical
  • Definitely a future development, possibly tied in to degradable packaging.
  • School has a contract for construction waste disposal – segregated from general waste.
  • Reuse material if they can & don’t use cement so bricks can be taken apart again.


  • Small jobs – waste usually removed by the contractor.
  • Working on developing on-site contractor waste facility.
  • Developed Site Waste Management Plan Guidance for large jobs if contractors wish to use it.
  • Ensure all contractors have the relevant & correct paperwork & licence.
  • Audit all companies-in person or using paperwork
  • Ensure consignment notes are left when material is collected
  • Use companies on recommendation or who are transparent in their processes
  • Suppliers not providing us with the correct paperwork
  • Suppliers not taking their responsibilities seriously
  • Staff & students ‘not bothered’
  • Staff not understanding the reasons for developing waste management
  • College Intranet & eventually website
  • Simple, easy to understand posters
  • Information in induction sessions/staff training & packs
  • Helpdesk for queries
  • Environmental contact details easily accessible
  • Remind people there is a legal duty to do what they are being asked to do!
