Reuse at the University
British Heart Foundation Cymru (BHF) & Halls of Residence
British Heart Foundation Cymru is Bangor University's Halls of Residence reuse partner. We have been working with BHF for a few years in order to increase donations and reuse, whilst supporting a charity working continuously to improve our nation’s health.
There are two permanent donation banks, one located in the Ffriddoedd Student Village and one bank in St Mary’s Student Village, where students can donate unwanted clothing, accessories, DVDs, CDs, books etc. throughout the year. There is also a ‘Pack for Good Campaign’ that takes place at the end of term, promoting reuse and donations as well as the newly introduced end of term Reuse and Recycling Drive.
BHF also work with the University on various campaigns and events such as Waste Awareness Week, Halls to Home, and the Reuse and Recycling Drive. CPR training sessions are also organised by BHF and Campus Life, which are free for students to attend.
Bangor University and BHF Cymru’s 2018 ‘Pack for Good’ Report is available here.
Lug a Mug, Refill & Catering
The Catering Team – Eat Drink Bangor, have Bangor University branded reusable coffee mugs, water bottles and water pouches, whilst the University is also a ‘Refill University’. This means that you can fill your reusable water bottle at any of our catering outlets across campus.
The reusable Coffee Mugs, Water Bottles and Water Pouches are available to buy in most of our catering outlets. If you use your own 'keep'cup, you will get a 20p discount on every hot drink with it.
Library Textbook Donations
There is a Donation Station (trolley) for unwanted textbooks in the Main Library. Students are encouraged to leave any unwanted textbooks on the trolley and help themselves to any books they need. Students can also leave notices on the board behind the trolley, if they want to sell or buy a textbook.
