Single Use Reduction pilot
Tell me more...
Within the University we are facing challenges around the single use packaging. It is one of the main sources of waste in the Student Quad, the majority of which ends up in landfills.
Campus Life have partnered with the Sustainability and Environment team to launch the Single Use Reduction pilot (aka SURe!), which aims to work with key food retailers on campus to help reduce the amount of single use packaging. The pilot has been designed as part of the University's wider efforts to materialise the sustainability policy’s key principles and encourage the use of reusable items around campus.
Retail outlets involved

- Customers are responsible for ensuring their container is clean, free of cracks or chips and made of food grade materials.
- Retailers have the right to refuse a container if it does not meet food safety standards.
- All containers need to meet food grade standards and be able to withstand heat above 75 degrees.
There are limited washing stations around the City Campus and we strongly encourage you to bring clean containers and wash your dirty containers at home. If you need to wash your container at University some common areas are located here:
- HSB Student common area
- 401 Engineering level 0 common area
