All staff and students can make a difference by sorting their waste correctly to minimise the contamination of our waste streams.
Recycling is a waste stream that is often highly contaminated. If recycling is contaminated, it could go to landfill at a high cost to UC and the environment. Examples of items that must be put in the red landfill bins include;
- Lids from plastic, glass or milk bottles
- Yoghurt pottles
- Sandwich packs
- Sushi containers
- Soft plastic packaging, like chip bags and muesli wrappers
