Plastic bottle recycling

This short film shows how plastic bottles are collected across the main campus and subsequently recycled - the University recycles around 1 tonne of these a week which is equivalent to around 2½ miliion bottles a year.

Please note that the University changed waste contractors on 7th January 2019 and as such the process for disposing of plastic bottles has changed slightly - the video to the right of this page will be updated in due course.
