A new student society has been set up called "Leave No Trace", ready for the new term.
The society will be running a Green Hub at the Tuesday Farmer's Market every two weeks, collecting items to take to The Green Centre to recycle.
The Green Centre are dedicated to finding channels to recycle as many items not usually recycled by the council as possible - from crisp packets to makeup packaging and more. Megan Youngs, the founder of Leave No Trace, was introduced to The Green Centre at the USSU "Big Sort" event, where The Green Centre were invited to Falmer House to do an on-campus collection.
We are so excited to see the amazing work Leave No Trace will be doing; make sure to have a rummage about at home for your usually non-recyclables, and visit them at the Tuesday market! (Don't forget to like their Facebook page to check when they'll be around).
The materials they will be accepting for recycling include:
If you'd like to recycle even more, you can visit the Green Centre at the Open Market on a Thursday - check out the list of what they accept here. They also have an A-Z guide for recycling and waste disposal of all sorts of materials in the local area.
