Donate, Don’t Waste

Every year, tonnes of waste gets left behind on Campus, most of which could be reused, recycled or donated to charity.

Donate, Don’t Waste is there to help you recycle or pass on as much as possible when you move out and it will help reduce the tonnes of stuff that gets left behind each year.

ACS work with the British Heart Foundation and other charities to make sure everything goes to a worthwhile cause.
