Did you know contaminating recycling means that often the whole bin ends up going to landfill?
By knowing "What goes where" we can increase the amount of resources we recover through the recycling system
You can reduce waste on campus and in your office by using the co-mingled (yellow) and paper (blue) bins provided.
If you require a new or replacement bin, you can raise a Pulse request or contact your office administrator to raise on your behalf.
Could your student club, Residence or staff area reduce event waste such as disposable plates, cutlery, cups, balloons and decorations?
Our Sustainability at Charles Sturt events guide is a great help to planning a more sustainable event!
If you want support purchasing re-usable items to make an "events kit" on your campus please email Sustainability at Charles Sturt and tell us what you are planning to do.
We have expanded the types of recycling collected on Wagga campus - batteries, printer cartridges and oral hygiene products can now be dropped off in the library (bldg 13), NaLSH (bldg 289) and dentistry precinct!
Five sites across Wagga campus now have installed 'worm hotels' to take organics from offices and residential buildings. This project was funded through a Sustainability at Charles Sturt project grant in 2017. Download instructions from the project team on how to install worm hotels on your campus or at home. Please note if you are thinking about installing worm hotels across CSU campuses you must discuss this with facilities management (DFM) and Sustainability at Charles Sturt to ensure the system can be installed and maintained correctly.
