What can I do?

We are committed to reducing our waste through a circular economy approach. The reuse@leeds website allows you to donate unused items.
One of the big ways to reduce your impact on the environment is by travelling sustainably. We have a range of information and support to help you plan your travel.

If you do have something to recycle, we have a clear guide for recycling across campus to make it as easy as possible for people.

  • Goal 2: No poverty
  • Goal 4: Zero hunger
