Driving up levels of recycling – City Council & Binit announce new contract
Published: 11 November 2019
Recycling and general waste from the University of Exeter will now be picked up by the City Council and Binit, it has been announced.
The University recently re-tendered its waste collection and recycling service and the contract was awarded to a partnership comprising of the City Council and Binit.
Under the new contract, the two partner organisations will work together to help the University increase the amount of its waste that is recycled, using its experience to find high quality end uses for recyclable material to maximise the environmental benefits.
The City Council will operate collections of ‘dry’ recycling: glass, cardboard, cans and plastics, all collected separately to maximise quality, as well as general rubbish. Binit will arrange collections of food waste as well as ‘difficult’ materials like mattresses and duvets.
