Process (reuse)

  1. The University has a partnership with Better World Books (BWB) who offer a book reuse service; if books are in good condition, send for reuse (catalogues and journals cannot be reused via BWB).
  2. Request BWB boxes from Waste Office and pack books, and contact Waste Office to arrange uplift by courier directly from source.

Process (recycling)

  1. Damaged books, catalogues and journals can be recycled (if not suitable for reuse).
  2. Small number - place in Dry Mixed Recycling bin (orange lid).
  3. Large number - place in clear plastic sacks (do not fill more than half full) and contact Waste Office to arrange uplift.
