UCD: we demand recycling bins in our university

We demand that UCD implement recycling and brown bins in college buildings and across the campus. We believe that the current recycling system in this college is insufficient given that once food contaminates the contents of bins, those contents can no longer be recycled. UCD is currently far behind many other Irish colleges in terms of recycling facilities and this needs to be rectified.

As a college with over 30, 000 students and staff we could make a serious impact in promoting the recycling campaign and reducing the negative environmental impacts. Introducing the much-needed recycling system into the campus would reduce the amount of rubbish going to landfill, polluting the oceans and poisoning marine and land animals. When it comes to the environment we can always do better but this is the absolute minimum that we can and should do as a university.
