S002 Almost everything can be recycled here at the University so put it all in the recycling bins! This includes all plastics (including carrier bags, cling film, food packets and bottles), all paper and card (including tetra packs), and all cans, tins and foil. Put food waste in a food caddie for composting! Glass is recycled separately – why not take any glass bottles home to be recycled in your household recycling!
