This week saw the launch of Leeds By Example, a city wide campaign, trialling the new ways we can make recycling consistent and easy. On our city campus, visit two recycle reward machines and get 5p off your next purchase at one of our many cafes, by simply recycling your plastic bottles, cans and coffee cups. Many of our staff and students have already been using the machines! If you're checking out the Kirkgate Market, be sure to recycle and get 10p off food.


Keep hold of your plastic, cans and coffee cups and make sure they're empty. Leftover food and liquid could make a whole batch go to waste.

Find a yellow recycling bin.  There are over 30 in Leeds City Centre, you’re never more than 5 minutes away! Empty coffee cups can be recycled in any Costa, McDonalds, Pret, Caffè Nero and Starbucks.
Follow the signs and only recycle items they ask for. If in doubt, leave it out. 

Download the We-Recycle App

You can recycle on the go easily with the new We Recycle app. Simply scan your packaging's barcodes and find out where it can be recycled or where your nearest bin in Leeds is. 


Visit the burping and bubble blowing recycling bin in the city too! Be sure to share all of your experiences with the hashtag, #LeedsByExample and tag us @BeckettSustain on twitter.
