Recycling

The University of Sheffield is an environmentally responsible organisation and is committed to reducing and managing its’ environmental impact.

Help get our recycling rates back on track by using the blue recycling bins for more than just paper and card.

The blue recycling bins are also for cans, tins, glass, foil and plastics (polythene, bottles, pots, tubs, trays) – just give them a quick rinse if needed.

The black rubbish bin is for tissues, hand towels, dirty food cartons, coffee cups and food waste.
