We are committed to reducing waste volumes and increasing recycling rates across all our operations. We are a zero waste to landfill university. Any material that cannot be recycled locally is incinerated and returned to our city centre buildings as heat.
How to recycle at SHU
Recycling on campus is easy as we have one green bin for all of recyclable materials. The items that you can recycle in these bins are as follows:
clean plastic bottles
clean tins and cans
The University also has coffee cup recycling pod stations located in Chef Hallam Central, Cutting Edge, The Granary and Adsetts Centre catering outlets where you can recycle single-use coffee cups.
