Staff: reduce, reuse, recycle
The Circular Economy is about transitioning from a ‘take-make-dispose’ linear approach to resource use, to systems that encourage reuse and extraction of maximum value before returning resources to the biosphere.
Find out about suggestions to help you reuse, how you can recycle using University bins and learn about how you can save paper. It is best to follow the waste hierarchy:
- Prevent waste
- Prepare for reuse
Only if none of the options above are possible should an item be disposed of.
|Ordering and consuming less is the easiest way to cut down on waste.||If you are ordering items then try and consolidate ordering so you use less packaging. You can do this by ordering less frequently, or ordering for the whole building, school or department.|
|You can consolidate your materials.||Making an inventory or having a stationery amnesty, can make sure you don’t order excess and get the most out of your current things.|
