We’ve now recycled over 11,000 single-use coffee cups!

Posted on 18 March 2022

Following the introduction of single-use coffee cup bins on campus in 2020 in an aim to further reduce our plastic waste, we have now recycled over 11,000 single-use coffee cups.

The coffee cup shaped recycling bins were installed using money raised through the Latte Levy and the cups themselves are recycled through a partnership with Forge Recycling. This extraordinary figure has been achieved by encouraging everyone in our university community to dispose of their waste sensibly and where possible to recycle.

Remember, if you purchase a hot drink and use a single-use plastic cup, please make sure you find our green coffee cup shaped recycling bins to dispose of them instead of putting them in general waste.
