Takeaway items including coffee cups, drinks cups and food boxes should typically go into the general waste bins. They are not recyclable. Essex Food outlets use compostable and biodegradable takeaway packaging, which has a lower carbon impact in manufacture and disposal.
If there are minimal, or no food traces in a takeaway box, including pizza boxes (carboard only), these can go into the dry mixed recycling bin – please do not put food into these bins.
To reduce waste, you can take your own reusable takeaway cup to outlets on campus, and you’ll get a discount too. Win, win!
