Blue bins on campus

Have you seen the blue bins on campus and wondered what they are? Read on to learn more…

If you haven’t noticed yet, there are blue bins on campus which are placed right next to the standard green, red and yellow ones. The label reads “coffee cups only”.

After a successful initial trial last year, the Sustainability Office has now started an extended 2 year trial till the end of 2016, to investigate the long term viability of composting coffee cups. Keep in mind that it is coffee cups only that go into the blue bins, not the lids!
