We are working to significantly reduce the amount of waste we produce and have several onsite recycling centres. We have increased the number of on-street mixed recycling bins across our campuses and recycle a number of waste items, from cans, tins, paper, glass and plastic, to mobile phones, fluorescent tubes, computer hardware and ink cartridges.
Further information on waste and recycling at The University of Nottingham.
