Sign this to get recycling bins for Manor Village flats. 

This could save tonnes of recyclables from going to landfill and polluting our oceans. Manor Villages student accommodation currently only has 3 recycling bins (only 2 of which are accessible). This is literal trash

These bins are only in the main recycling area which means many students will not have seen them (as they use other bins). For the amount of students, 2 recycling bins isn't enough. 

What needs to be done: 

  1. Manor Villages need to get more big recycling bins
  2. Manor Villages need to provide recycling bins for flats
  3. Manor Villages needs to encourage students to recycle by having easily accessible recycling bins and information

Manor Villages have failed to take on any responsibility when asked about this or the lack of recycling bins in general or for the individual flats themselves, stating in emails that:

  • 'Unfortunately, this matter is out of our hands.'

- Untrue, as a private company they are solely responsible for the recycling facilities

  • 'We will not be purchasing additional plastic bins for the flats as we are trying to reduce the amount of plastic used on site.'

- But this would greatly reduce the overall plastic waste, as little as one recycling bin per hall would make a huge difference.

  • 'We have 2 blue recycling bins in the larger car park on-site, but this is all the council will provide us with.'

- Untrue, the council have stated that they encourage all businesses to recycle

This is just not good enough.

What needs to be done (repeated): 

  • Manor Villages need to get more big recycling bins
  • Manor Villages need to provide recycling bins for flats
  • Manor Villages needs to encourage students to recycle by having easily accessible recycling bins and information

It's so simple and easy and would save literally tonnes of trash from being wrongly put into landfill. Please sign if you feel the same!
