We’re ditching the disposables!

Tired of eating out of a takeaway box? We're pleased to announce we'll be doing away with the disposables and bringing back standard cutlery and crockery in our catering outlets from Monday 29 November.

The good news comes after receiving confirmation from the University's Health and Safety team and will allow us to return to our focus on sustainability by offering reusable items and cutting down on waste. You'll also be able to use your own mugs and reusable cups in our campus cafes.

Please be assured that we will continue to comply with all health and safety standards, including regular cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces, cutlery and crockery, using our industrial dishwashers to clean items, and ensuring staff continue to wear the appropriate PPE when cleaning and clearing items from tables.
