Recycling & Waste

Welcome to UCC's Recycling and Waste Management Pages

The University is committed to reduce the volume of waste generated and to increase the proportion of that waste which is recycled. We endeavour to implement sustainable resource management practices based on reduce, reuse and recycle principles. The University will strive to reduce the acquisition of new materials, re –using existing materials and increase recycling to the best possible standards. All waste will be disposed of in a manner consistent with statutory requirements and a documenting procedure implemented. We will use this site as a platform so all staff and students can stay continually informed on the University’s waste policies and procedures. For further information or suggestions please contact
