Durham University


Waste Awareness Week

Waste Awareness Week takes place every year and this year's campaign will commence on Monday, 4 November 2019. The campaign is aimed at encouraging all University members to reduce the volume of waste we produce and to ensure that we all follow correct recycling procedures.

Staff and students are also encouraged to enter the 'Slim your Bin' competition, test their knowledge in an online quiz and make sure they are up to speed with waste and recycling at Durham University. Guests from Durham County Council and Biffa, the University's waste contractor, also contribute with activities and information about what we can all do to tackle waste!

Further details about the activites and events for the week will be promoted here shortly.
