Waste and Recycling

The Faculty has a number of well labelled bins to help everyone to dispose of their rubbish correctly.

Pen and Battery recycling

There are labelled baskets by the Green Impact noticeboard in the Faculty corridor for pen and battery recycling.

Please bring your print toners to the Faculty Office.

Glass recycling

There is a glass recycling bin in the Faculty Office.

Coffee pods

Please place Nespresso coffee pods in the dedicated tin next to the coffee machine.
