Wherever you live as a student, you should always dispose of your waste sensibly

Please ensure that all household rubbish is bagged up in bin liners and placed in the bins provided outside your property; it is incredibly important that you do this, as the refuse collectors will not take any items that are left outside of the bins. Bags of rubbish not only are a general eyesore but encourage the escalation in the rodent population.

Environmental Enforcement Officers have also been known to examine stray bags for information and impose fixed fines on the culprit - so beware!

Waste is becoming an incredibly large problem throughout the world - the UK alone throws away a massive 26 million tonnes of rubbish every year

Unipol has introduced recycling bins to many of our larger developments in Leeds, including: Carlton Hill, Mill Street, Holborn Terrace / Shay Street, Grayson Heights, Mary Morris House, Royal Park Road, New York Street, and Cardigan Road Flats.

These properties have green and white containers. The green containers are for the following recyclable materials:

Paper e.g.

Cardboard e.g.

Metal Cans e.g.

Plastics

junk mail

brown card

drink cans

types 1, 2 and 4 * such as

office paper

glossy card

food cans

plastic bags

newspapers

egg boxes

pet food cans

plastic bottles

magazines

toilet inner tubes

 

plastic milk containers

 

The white containers are solely for glass, of any colour.

In Nottingham, Graystacks and iD Apartments are provided with recycling bins for disposal of card, glass, plastic and tins.

Doris Birdsall, Bradford, has recycling bins for the collection of paper/card, plus additional bins for glass, plastic and tins.

These recycling containers are rather large and so aren’t suitable for smaller complexes and houses. The council can provide smaller green bins so long as your property is on a green recycling route; you can find out if your house is on one of these by calling 0845 1240113.

If you discover your property isn’t on a route there are still other ways to recycle your materials.

You can recycle, compost or dispose of almost everything at a Household Waste Centre. It will mean you finding your own way there but these recycling areas can usually be found quite close. To find out where your local Household Waste Centre is and how to contact them please use the following link:

There are also 340 small recycling areas, often in supermarket or pub car parks, around Leeds where you can take glass, paper and textiles. A list of these can be obtained from www.recycle-more.co.uk.
