Recycling and Sustainability

Doing Our Bit For The Environment:

DCU is a Green Flag University:
The Sustainability Office have ongoing plans to continue establishing DCU as a sustainable & green campus. 

We do our part, In the residences, by using the recycing bins in the correct way. Please separate your general waste, mixed recycleables and glass in your accommodation. You have bins provided for mixed recycleables. 

We cannot accept rubbish being disposed of in the incorrect way and so, fines will be implemented for incorrect use of the recycling bins. The environment is too important to all of us in the DCU community and you are now a big part of that community.

Larkfield , Hampstead and College Park, you have your own individual recycling points containing:

Red bins for general Waste
Green bins for dry mixed recyclables
Brown bins for glass 

Larkfield you have food waste bins in your kitchens and a food waste bin in your recycling point, to move this waste to. We will be sending you further information on this soon.

You will be unable to use black bags in your apartments. We need to be able to check on the waste going to each area. You can only use see through bags. Incorrect use of recycling bins or use of black bags will result in €5 fines. Help us to keep DCU clean & green.

Did you know that pizza boxes CANNOT go into the green recycling bins because of the grease on the box. But great news Larkfield, these can go into your countertop food waste bin for composting.
