BG Green is pleased to announce the publication of new Waste & Recycling FAQs on the University’s sustainability webpages. Amongst other things, the FAQs describe what types of waste can be disposed of where, and what happens to university waste & recycling when it leaves campus, in a bid to help staff, students, and the wider BGU community with their recycling on campus.

BG Green, the University’s working group on sustainability and ethical practice, was established in April 2022 and meets monthly. Its purpose is to seek to reduce the University’s carbon footprint by developing and delivering projects and initiatives for environmental sustainability and ethical practice.

Recent work by BG Green has included the establishment of a ‘Swap Shop’ where members of the university community can exchange items like clothing, footwear, and useful household items; knitting classes, with free knitting supplies, to show people how to make scarves and hand warmers; and the publication of a new Sustainable Food Policy.
