University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Estates and Operations Session Outline

3 Scotland’s regulations From 1 January 2014… Every business or organisation operating in Scotland, no matter how large or small needs to segregate: Paper Plastic Metals Glass Food (for those producing more than 50Kg/week) Scotland has a potential savings of £192 million by: Reducing landfill taxes of £95 million Recovering recyclates valued at £97 million.

4 Our Approach at Strathclyde Why Highly segregated? Best market rates for materials Less contamination / better material quality Understanding of waste as a value / resource Why collective Implementation? Positive departmental engagement (Why, How, What) Contractor Performance Management Data Management / Monthly Reporting Performance KPI How To Avoid A Riot While Embedding Highly Segregated Waste Collections? University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Estates and Operations

5 Pilot Recycling System How To Avoid A Riot While Embedding Highly Segregated Waste Collections? University of Strathclyde, Glasgow Desk Tray – For Paper Only + Desk side bins were kept Recycling stations Signage sample Food waste segregation

6 Awareness Posters Low impact and behaviour Low impact on website visits (waste A to Z) Signage Single colour branding - confusing for users DO & DO NOT material lists on containers – ineffective Containers Cardboard containers – cheap but not durable Placement – very specific to rooms and users Desk side bins – removal is critical to behaviour change Engagement Need support from HOD Need cross-team / trans-departmental working groups Time intensive; need (cost effective) staff resources How To Avoid A Riot While Embedding Highly Segregated Waste Collections?
