  • Crisp packet recycling
  • Rechargeable batteries used where possible
  • Battery recycling collection
  • Scrap paper recycling in the Pendlebury
  • Two additional bike parking racks in our car park

What have we been we doing?

  • Posting updates and useful information on our Twitter account 
  • Sending regular emails on our progress and wider sustainability issues
  • Taking part in University environmental events and campaigns, such as the Single-Out and Let's Talk Transport campaigns

We have also:

  • Consulted with the Sustainability Team about boiler and chiller works in the building
  • Carried out an audit of our radiators to find out whether they run optimally
  • Three members of our team carried out a litter pick as part of the Preventing Plastic Pollution project run by the Rivers Trust. We picked litter on the Sidgiwck Site for two hours and uploaded data about the items we found.
  • In May 2021 we ran a pedometer challenge involving staff and students from across the University. Between us we achieved a whopping 6,525,725 steps!
  • In June 2021 we took part in the Wildlife Trust's 30 Days Wild challenge, posting suggestions of activites for each day.
