Recycling in OD&PL

This page is intended as a guide for OD&PL members of staff.

For an A – Z of what can be recycled around campus check out the university’s comprehensive ABC recycling guide.

Battery Recycling: Used batteries can be collected for recycling at the places below, these are either taken to the collection point in LUU or sent to Cleaning Services.

  • GTSC – collection envelope on noticeboard in kitchen (1.01)
  • Baines Wing – collection box in room LG36

Additionally, there are some rechargeable batteries available to borrow. 

Paper: For non-confidential waste, we are encouraged to re-use paper if only 1 side has been printed on.  We should use it for scrap or reprinting ourselves wherever possible.  In some instances (for example when we had out-of-date letterhead paper), this can taken to Bright Beginnings nursery by colleagues who use the nursery. For general printing, double-sided printing is encouraged and is the default setting for all printers.

Of course, you may wish to collect this in your own offices.

Printer & toner cartridges: These are all recycled through appropriate methods. 

Pens: All types of used pens can be recycled or upcycled into other products.  There are collection boxes in both large training rooms.

Used Postage Stamps: If you have used stamps, they can be sent to charities to raise money  (overseas stamps are worth around 4 times as much as UK stamps).
