Castle Mill tenants trial charity recycling campaign

The Graduate Accommodation Office (GAO) is working with the British Heart Foundation to trial a recycling service for unwanted student belongings at the end of their tenancy agreement.

The items are collected by BHF to provide stock for their shops and to be recycled.

Bags and boxes were delivered to Castle Mill at the beginning of May and the scheme is being publicised via posters across the site.  Initial take-up has been very encouraging and the team are looking forward to receiving feedback from the charity after the summer about how much they are collecting. If successful the scheme will be rolled out to other GAO sites.
