Mixed recycling and landfill
Every year, Monash University generates approximately 5,300 tonnes of waste and recycling materials on our Victorian campuses. The University needs your help to ensure items are placed in the correct bin.
Mixed recycling and landfill bins can be found across the campus. Internal bins have coloured stickers depicting which items can be placed in the bin. Legislation requires certain waste types to be collected separately for example, batteries and hazardous waste and eWaste. Check our recycling and waste disposal web page to find out about these and other recycling programs.
To order bins or new stickers refer to our resources web page or contact Buildings and Property Division via phone (9902 0222) or email (email@example.com).
All items put into the recycling bins must be free of food waste. It is not necessary to clean your container thoroughly, but there should be little to no solids or obvious food residue before any item goes in the recycling. Small qualities of food residue is acceptable in hard plastic, metal and glass containers. Paper and cardboard must be clean and free from food residue.
When placing in mixed recycling bins ensure items are loose and free from plastic bags.
