Waste, recycling and re-use

About 25,000 people work and study at Oxford University, generating a considerable amount of waste.

The University aims to reduce waste to landfill and to reuse and recycle as much waste as possible, in line with its Waste Strategy, in turn reducing greenhouse gas emissions and waste disposal costs.

How are we reducing waste?

  • Implementing the Waste Strategy and producing a Waste Plan
  • Increasing re-use of materials across the University through a sharing platform
  • Working with the non-hazardous waste service provider to increase recycling and monitor and measure waste production
