The Big Green Clean is underway

Posted on 17 May 2018

Donate your unwanted stuff at the end of term.

Big Green Clean

The Big Green Clean recycles your unwanted stuff to help good causes and future students, and reduces the amount of waste going to landfill.

You can donate:

  • Clean saucepans and cookware
  • Clean crockery, plates and utensils
  • Books
  • Electrical appliances
  • In date, unopened, non-perishable food

Food will be donated to a local food bank and any books and electrical items will be further donated to good causes. Other items will be offered for sale to new students in September in order to raise funds for college activities.

Where to donate

There is a crate in each college for your items. Look out for the green signs - you can see the location of drop-off points on the YUSU Big Green Clean page.

Get involved

The Big Green Clean is a collaborative project run by YUSU, colleges and the University.
