Catering departments are dominating the top spots now that they are part of the Recycling League with CPU recycling a staggering 74% of their waste so far this year – a fantastic result! Keep it up!

Some other high achievers over the last couple of months are MERL and Wantage Hall (catering) who have increased their recycling figure by 12% and 10% respectively, well done to you and lets hope to see you climbing up the ranks next time too.

We’ve also seen a general rise in recycling within building and departments of between 2% and 4% overall over the last couple of months which is great news and if we all keep up the effort we will hopefully hit our target of 60%.

Still a lot to do though – please let waste@reading.ac.uk know if there are any recycling issues that you notice or if you have any ideas about increasing recycling in your area please get in touch.
