A Manchester first as Recycling Week is launched

(9 November 2017)

The University, with the support of Manchester City Council and Manchester Student Homes, will be launching the first ever Manchester Recycling Week from 13 until 19 November.

The week aims to raise awareness about the importance of recycling and why more needs to be done. The University’s recycling rate is currently around 30%, which we can improve on. 

Off campus areas such as Fallowfield recycle almost 50% of their waste and Old Moat recycles over 60%.
