Recycling in the University

Cardiff University is committed to recycling. 

Recycling is managed via the Cleaning Services Section, detailed on the Estates division's web area. 

What can and can’t be recycled can be found in the Recycling Scheme List linked on the right. This list applies to the University's Cathays Campus but doesn't apply to the majority of the Heath Park buildings or outlying University sites at present.

Recycling redundant computer and other electrical equipment is governed by the WEEE (Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment) Regulations. More information on the procedure for disposal of WEEE items may be found in the Cardiff University WEEE Disposal Guidance on the Occupational Safety, Health and Environment Unit's web area.

Data on overall recycling targets and performance will be published in due course.

Reusing and Disposing of Unwanted Goods

Guidance on reusing and disposing of unwanted items is also available from the University's Purchasing section's web area. (This is a secure area available only to Cardiff University members. Please use your normal University username and password to access it.)
