Recycle Week takes place from Monday 25 September to Sunday 1 October across the country. The theme for this year is ‘Recycling – it’s worth it’. The campaign aims to promote the benefits of recycling and encourage people to recycle more everyday items, bust some myths and show benefits of recycling.
Manchester Met has a target to reuse or recycle 60% of all our waste by 2020, currently we have achieved 46.3% (2015-16). Following a refresh of our waste and recycling labels and instructions, we are keen to encourage staff and students to recycle right, avoid unnecessary contamination and increase the amount we recycle on campus.
With your help, we can reach 60% and contribute to the UK’s overall target of 50% by 2020. Remind yourself about what we can recycle on campus & download a poster to display in your area here.
During Recycling Week we will be out rewarding positive recycling behaviours with small gift on behalf of the university, keep a look out for our student ambassadors on campus!
