Waste Management

Doing Our Bit...

The Open University continues to build on its success of increasing the overall waste not sent to landfill from 46% in 2006 to 96.6% in 2020.

We have reduced our waste to landfill in 2020 to just 3.34% of our total waste produced.

Our recent recycling initiatives include crisp packet, coffee pod and coffee cup recycling. Additionally, clinical waste from Walton Hall Campus is sent to an NHS and is burnt and used to provide power for the hospital.
