Reduce, Reuse, Recycle A Success: Money Will be Used to Buy More Recycling Bins

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is an initiative run by the Union to minimise the amount of waste going from student accommodations to landfill at the end of each academic year. Kitchen utensils, crockery and all manner of items are collected from halls of residence, washed and then resold to students in the new academic year.

To further the benefits of this programme, the Union has decided to use the money raised to buy better recycling facilities for the Union building. The Union is committed to being as environmentally conscious as it can be, and this year won the Gold Green Impact Award for its work.

If you have any ideas about how the Union can be greener, be sure to email Benj, our Environment Officer at union.environment@uea.ac.uk
