•City Clean Up PLUS at End Sep - Early Oct

  • City Clean Up
    • This is proposed for late September to Early October.
    • Previously these have been one day events, however, if there is enough support we might do this over a period of days. 
    • This might enable more people otherwise unavailable on one day to attend on another.
  • Environment.   Landlords and universities are encouraged to work in harmony to reduce our carbon footprint.  If we succeed we will also improve communities.
    • UKC ‘s Tom Currie is leading the way:
    • Landlords are encouraged to write to their tenants reiterating the good work led by Thomas Currie the Environmental Officer at UKC. 
    • Tom wants to join with students and landlords on the next City Cleanup.
    • Tom also wants to door-knock within the community with a view to improving student conduct and resident perceptions.
    • Landlords, whose tenants repeatedly fail to properly recycle, can ask Tom to intervene.  Says Tom, “Students are more likely to listen to their peers”.
    • Each year students and landlords dispose of tons of unwanted but useful household items.  We all hate such waste but due to time limits and volume of such stuff, find ourselves unable to avoid dumping it.  Charities and some students would find such items “not junk”.  Tom is  introducing a scheme to help – more details to follow.
  • Rubbish Reminders
    • It is really important that as students arrive that landlords play their part to make students aware of the need to recycle. 
    • Recycling begins inside the house not outside. 
    • Provide two bins in the kitchen; one for recycling and the second for landfill.
    • Before tenants arrive, ensure each bin has a clear and a black bin-liner inside. 
    • This makes it easy for students to simply follow your lead.
    • Carry out assistance the evening before the first collections until studnets get the hang of it.
