Watch out for the new recycling bins @SOAS Main College Building!

Estates have teamed up with Sustainability team and Students Union to run a trial period of 3 months before investing in new bins throughout the estate. We are hoping that the new set of bins, after having passed the trial period, will improve our recycling performance from 72% to 78%. Some of the bins will also take food waste if located in a food traffic area.

The locations of the new trial bins are:

JCR, Bar area, Basement lobby, Reception, Ground floor lobby

Question Title

* 1. What is your first reaction of the new bins?

Question Title

* 6. Any other comments?

Question Title

* 7. Following this trial, we will be introducing a separate waste stream collection for paper only (this will be a blue bin). If paper is collected separately we are greatly reducing the chances of contamination and ensure good quality recycling material. 
Look out for the blue bins and help us recycle correctly.
