Come and learn about recycling and waste at UQ!

Recycling can be confusing; with all the different coloured bins it can be hard to know where to start! At this Sustainability Week event, we’re here to spread the word about how every one of us can minimise our impact on the environment through recycling.

Join us to hear from UQ alumni and waste expert Sophie Rutter, as well as members of our Green Ambassador Program (GAP), to learn more about the different types of recycling available on campus and how you can help reduce waste in the community.

Registration essential: a Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants the morning of the event. You can follow the event on Facebook here.
