  Reducing Waste

At Edinburgh Napier, we want to encourage the three Rs - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle!
Please help us to do our bit for the environment by recycling as much of your waste on campus as possible​. 

There are bins for cups, food, glass, metals, paper & card and plastics located throughout campuses.  There are also landfill bins for all items that cannot be recycled.

Steps we are taking

  • We have removed plastic cutlery from our catering outlets.
  • We have removed napkins from general display and are encouraging people to ask for napkins only if they need them.
  • We have introduced a 25p charge for disposable cups, with the proceeds going towards sustainable projects.
  • We have launched Edinburgh Napier Keep Cups to encourage the use of resusable cups.
​If there are any ways you'd like to see us reduce waste, get involved by emailing​

What you can do to help

Make sure you're recycling as much as possible by putting your rubbish in the correct bins. If you're unsure what goes where, check out our helpful recycling guide​.​
