Waste Management

Glasgow Kelvin College are working in partnership with a number of organisations to ensure that recycling, reusing and reducing waste are at the forefront of our approach to waste management.

The College has a successful partnership with Enva, who deliver, collect and report on the College’s general waste production and the amount of waste materials recycled. Since the start of the partnership in 2016, the impact has been highly positive, with feedback reports showing a rise in the percentage of waste material being recycled and not sent to landfill.
