Prior to this exercise, the University wishes to engage with the market in order to appraise itself of current practices, techniques and new technologies in this area. The University is committed to improving the rates of recycling (currently approximately 40%) of the waste it generates, and reducing the volume of waste sent to landfill, and is seeking information from willing parties as to how it can help achieve this.
