Get in the bin – recycling audit!

At Manchester Metropolitan University, we are committed to recycling over 60% of our waste by 2020. To enable this to happen we need to understand how well we are doing and the mistake we still make.

We are looking for volunteers both staff & students to join us on Wednesday 25th October (1 – 3PM) to get in the bin! Analysing what goes in our recycling bin so we can identify the mistakes people still make. This will influence any further training, communications and engagement activities around recycling. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the impact of recycling on the environment and work with waste & sustainability professionals contributing to our sustainability commitments.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) and basic training will be provided and we will only be looking at our recycling bins, emptying and sorting items. We will be conducting this outside in All Saints Park, you'll need to wear appropritae clothing. 

If you are interested in getting involved please email Ryan Waugh at r.waugh@mmu.ac.uk.
