Waste Guidance Notes

Recycling images

The  operational controls in this section are referred to as Waste Guidance Notes,  there is a Quick Reference Guide (00) which  provides a quick summary on all the main waste  streams and on which you can add specific local instructions, (a word version  is available on request). Each waste stream then has its own Guidance Note and attached to some of these are posters which can be used for labelling waste bins/areas.  If the waste you are looking to dispose of is not  listed please email us at waste@lboro.ac.uk for further guidance.

Many  thanks and happy recycling.
