The 2016 Waste Audit highlighted the need for composting to increase at the University. A new waste collection plan has been drafted, and the summer of 2017 will see the initial implementation of this audit, with two waste audits planned, one at the beginning of the roll-out, and a second audit after significant education and training has been afforded to the end-users. For more information on the plan we have developed a short presentation (link below) outlining the what, when, where and how.
