University to recycle paper towels

17 December 2021

The paper towels that you use to dry your hands in the University toilets will constitute a new waste stream at the University.

From January 2022 used paper towels from the University will be used for recycled toilet paper. The University thus expects to have created a new waste stream with little to no contamination from other waste. Until recently it was not possible to collect paper towels for recycling, so used paper towels were collected with residual waste.

Change to delivery times of hygiene products

A change of supplier means that the delivery time of hygiene products has changed. Products that have been ordered will still be delivered on a set day once every two weeks, but from 17 January 2022 this will be on a Wednesday in uneven weeks (this was the Tuesday on even weeks) for products that have been ordered before 12.00 midday on a Monday in uneven weeks.
