Recycling at The University of Melbourne

The University of Melbourne want to be pioneers of sustainability, and invoke the change they hope to see in the world. In 2018, they became the first and only university to achieve a 6 Star Communities rating for their Parkville campus.

Their goals are varied, but consistency has always been key for successful implementation and groundbreaking results.

“We’re constantly doing talks, we put out posters, and we’ve got sustainability representatives in every faculty,” says Judith Alcorn, Waste Minimisation & Biodiversity Coordinator at the University.

Seeking the help of Method's colour-coded recycling bins in their faculty spaces and bathrooms, the University of Melbourne’s target was to drop their annual landfill output to 20kg per person by 2020.

We created a custom waste stream for the University's toilet facilities specifically for paper towels (their place of use), so that the facility could ensure theu were being recycled and diverted from landfill.

Successful implementation and sustainability on campus comes from education, motivation, and dedication to the cause. We’re excited to be a part of the University of Melbourne’s incredible, change-making journey.
