Waste Management

Managing waste responsibly starts at source with conscious decisions on what products we need to purchase, and at the appropriate quantities. Waste reduction, re-use and recycling are equally important.

NUS’ efforts in waste minimization include recycling paper, metals and plastics (PMP) as well as other waste streams. Find out more about the various types of waste items you can recycle on campus below, some of which are student-led too.

Collection of light bulbs for recycling has ceased as of 1 August 2017, as the collection partner South West CDC is no longer administrating the programme.
