Chelmsford College


We know recycling is important to you.

It’s important to us too. We care about the way we process our rubbish and recycling.


In our restaurant, refectory and cafés we sort our rubbish and our plastic is recycled with a local Essex company called Our plastic goes back into making new plastic or new products.

We believe we (and others) have a responsibility to recycle our plastics because:

  • It’s good for the environment;
  • It saves natural resources such as oil;
  • Our carbon footprint is reduced because it takes less energy to recycle plastics compared with manufacturing new material;
  • There’s less waste going to landfill;
  • It saves money.

If you’d like to share your views on this, or any other matter connected to College life, we’d love to hear from you.

We have “Learner Voice” a student process dedicated to listening to your views, ideas and suggestions.
