Donation and Recycling Schemes

There are a number of ways that you can reduce waste here at University. To see the schemes currently available please see below:

Donate More, Waste Leics Campaign

As you're packing up your room at the end of the year, we encourage you to donate your unwanted items to avoid unnecessary waste. Your unwanted goods help us to reduce waste on campus and will be donated to charity, recycled, or passed onto new students next year.

Not sure where to leave your item? Look it up in the tables below to find out where you nearest donation points are!
