Have your recycling questions answered online

In response to the ever-changing information in the public domain about what can and can’t be recycled, the Sustainability Team felt there needed to be a simple way to ensure everyone is doing their bit correctly whilst on campus.

Did you know by placing items that you ‘think’ can be recycled in a recycling bin you can sometimes contaminate a whole bin of recyclable waste, resulting in it going to landfill?

This month the Sustainability Team is trialling #CanIbeRecycledLU? on Twitter - a service where staff and students can tweet @SustainLboro a picture of an item they don’t know what to do with.

The team will help people find the correct place for waste items and will also respond to questions via Facebook and email.
