Recycling Programme



Improve recycling rates and make recycling more accessible to staff and students.



  • To reduce waste to promote recycling as a natural part of life at APU

  • To identify more effective reuse of resources to reduce waste and costs

  • To promote more environmentally friendly approaches to everyday work and study


Initiatives Undertaken

  • Use china cups/mugs and glasses rather than disposable cups for drinks where possible

  • Re-use envelopes for internal mail

  • Use the blank side of printed paper for scrap pads before recycling

  • Set printers/copiers to print duplex or double sided and only print documents when absolutely necessary

  • Send e-mails instead of letters or faxes where possible

  • Use paperclips (that can be reused) instead of staples
