Green Week Library promotion

Library Staff braved the weather today to demonstrate the amount of rubbish that is generated in the Library in 1 day. 

It is one of the busiest buildings on campus so a lot of rubbish will be generated but, although much of it could be re-cycled; most of it actually goes to landfill.  Why?...

Quite simply because we are not disposing of our rubbish very considerately.  Designated re-cycling bins have the wrong items deposited in them so it ends up at landfill anyway.  General use bins are used for waste that could be re-cycled.

Our call for action is to use the bins more considerately so LESS rubbish can be sent to landfill.
