The UC Sustainability Office is working with EnviroWaste to create a video and online resource to help answer your questions about our waste management system on campus.

If you have a waste related question that you’d like to see answered, or a comment you’d like to make, please email us at sustainability@canterbury.ac.nz before Wednesday 16 June. Your responses will help us understand where the communication focus of this resource  needs to be.
