Waste Management, Recycling and Disposal Procedures form part of the University’s Environmental Management Systems (EnvMS) requirements. The University adopted the EnvMS in February 2004 and a key environmental objective identified was to improve and monitor the University’s waste management programme. UK Waste legislation originates from the Control of Pollution Act 1974.
