As part of our WasteNott campaign to reduce single-use plastic on campus, the University’s waste contractor, Enva, is holding tours of the Nottingham facility where our waste is sent.
Enva (formally Wastecycle) removes and processes around 3,000 tonnes of waste from the University of Nottingham every year. This waste is taken to Enva’s sorting site in Colwick, where it’s added to waste from Nottingham businesses and other universities and sorted using a blend of mechanical sorting and hand sorting.
This process means that more than 95% of our waste is diverted from landfill and reused, recycled or used for energy recovery.
Facilities at Enva’s Colwick site include:
The tour of Enva’s Colwick facility will take place 9.00am-12pm, Wednesday 28 November at Toton Building, Private Road No. 4, Colwick Industrial Estate, Nottingham NG4 2JT.
All are welcome but due to limited space, advance booking is required.
Attendees should also note the following important information:
Register your attendance at Eventbrite by Friday 23 November 2018.
