End of Term Halls Reuse Drive
Bangor University strives to be the most resource efficient University; indeed we were ranked 7th in the world by the THE impact 2020 for our contribution to the SDG12 ‘ensuring sustainable production and consumption’.
Even though we are currently facing unprecedented challenges due to Covid-19, we are still working hard behind the scenes to ensure we capture as many items and materials for reuse and recycling as possible.
Donating not disposing
The End of Term Halls Reuse drive, organised collaboratively by Halls, PaCS and the Sustainability Lab provides students with the opportunity to donate unwanted reusable items to a local charity, Antur Waunfawr. Items including, crockery, pots and pans, clothes, shoes, kitchen utensils, can all be donated. All that’s required is for the student to place the reusable items in a red plastic bag provided, to be left outside the bedroom door. General waste, recycling, or food waste should not be placed in the red bag. It’s possible for the students to donate unopened non-perishable foods such as cereal, tins and jars by leaving them on their kitchen table.
The health and safety of our students, staff and volunteers is a priority during this pandemic. It has therefore been agreed that all items donated for reuse in the 2020 campaign are to be collected, stored and moved in red, single use bags. This will ensure that donations are not handled by multiple people in a short space of time, and once the donations have reached their destination, they can be sorted and processed as soon as possible.
