The recycling system is now up and running! Boxes can be placed outside your front door EVERY DAY.

Every ground floor kitchen should have a green box for glass bottles and jars.

Every living room should have a large clear box for paper.

You must ensure that your waste is sorted into the appropriate boxes provided in your house, and for ensuring that all of your recycling boxes are put outside the entrance of your building by 10am each day (this does not include waste paper bins from rooms and the general waste bin in your kitchen. These will be dealt with separately by your Bedmaker).

The House Porter is responsible for collecting the recycling boxes, emptying the contents into the appropriate bins and returning them to the front of your house. Large cardboard boxes should be flattened and left outside your building for collection by the House Porters.

Your Bedmaker will ensure your box is cleaned and returned to its correct place.

Unfortunately, plastic cannot be recycled at the moment. It is hoped that it will be in place by December.
