WasteNott — the plastics challenge

Reducing use of problematic single-use plastics



The Atrium at Jubilee Campus is now trialling removal of problematic single-use plastics including condiment sachets, single-serve jam packets and paper salt, pepper and sugar sachets.

Jubilee Atrium

The Atrium is the hub for 600 students living at Newark and Southwell halls on the campus, serving breakfast and dinner throughout the week and brunch at weekends. Lunch is also available to all students, staff and visitors to the campus between Monday and Friday.


The steps taken...

As well as butter and jam packets used during breakfast service for each diner, up to a dozen different sauces can be served during the evening meal.

This means hundreds of single-serve sachets used every week during term being binned. Condiments are now offered in bottles which are recyclable at end of life, and breakfast butter and jam are waste free.

It is expected that if this trial proves successful with diners it will be expanded to catered halls on University Park.
