As we are just about to go into the exams and move out period we thought it was time for a quick update on Leaving Liverpool Tidy. Leave Liverpool Tidy, along with the British Heart Foundation's Pack For Good, is a city wide project that aims to re-use, recycle and ultimately reduce the amount of items going to landfill. The project collects unwanted items which are then redistributed to those in need in the local community and students.
When Liverpool students move out of their accommodation over summer and clear out items they no longer want, lots of waste is created. But it’s not waste, as most of it can be re-used or recycled. This is where Leave Liverpool Tidy steps in to collect, sort and redistribute items. Last year over ten tonnes of items were redistributed through this project. Let’s try and donate even more this time around.
Your Hall will have a Textile Banks where you can donate anything you dont want to the British heart foundation.
If you have unwanted clothes, look out for the donation banks for textiles or ask your reception staff:
- Carnatic – top car park closest to reception in car park space nearest to reception building (New Lodge) and bottom car park in car park space closest to Rankin Hall building entrance
