King's College London is committed to reducing its impact on the environment, including the impact its waste has. This means ensuring as little waste as possible goes to landfill. The university aims to do this by applying the ‘Reduce, Re-use, Recycle’ waste hierarchy.
As part of this, King's College London tries to re-use items such as furniture within its campuses where possible through Warp-It, and has set a target recycling rate of 70%. We operate a 'zero to landfill' policy for general waste, food waste and bulky waste.
King's College London has also committed to cutting down on plastic and energy consumption by reducing single use plastic in campus restaurants and cafes. New initiatives such as the 50@50 programme which will help to reduce the amount of food waste that is produced at King's Food outlets.
