Waste

and Resource

Management

Strategy


Foreword


Understanding and managing our sustainability impact is a key part of our business
ethos. We recognise that our activities have an impact on the environment and the
local community and we are
committed to implementing a sustainable approach to
our business operations. Best practice waste and resource management is a central
aspect of this.

We have already made significant progress in managing our waste. Last year we
recycled
3
0% of our waste an
d reduced our total waste production by 5%. We have
also established a Waste Management

and Resource

Polic
y
,
Strategy and

a

Working
Group to implement the commitments we have made
.


This Strategy outlines our approach to implementing our Policy with ambitious
targets and an Implementation Plan to ensure we are legally compliant, that we
manage our waste according to the Waste Hierarchy and that we continue to make
improvements in our
performance year on year.

Over the next
five
years we have set incremental targets to achieve recycling rates of
75% whilst
also reducing our
total waste production by 5% against our Baseline Year
of 2012
/13
.
In addition, targets to reuse 10
% of all was
te by 2017 have been set,
and we are aiming to dispose
of
only 5% of our waste
to landfill by 2017.
I am
committed

to leading these initiatives and ensuring that plans outlined in this
Strategy become a reality.

Introduction


1.1

Canterbury

Christ Church University is a large
Higher Education
institution

with some 1,600 staff and 17,000 students across
5
campuses
(
Canterbury,

Broadstairs
, Folkestone, Tunbridge Wells (
Salomon’s
)

and Medway)
.

The
University recognises that
as
an institution of this size
it
has an impact upon
the environment both locally
, regionally

and
nationally
and is committed to
minimising
,

within the constraints imposed by financial sustainability
,

any
negati
ve
environmental
effects
from
the delivery of its core activities of
teaching, research and knowledge exchange.


1.2

The University is committed to sustainab
le
development based on clear key
performance indicators to ensure management is focused on key
objectives
and that

waste
target
s are met. This Waste Strategy
, together with the section
on sustainable development in the supporting documents of the
University
Strategic Plan, details the nature of this commitment.


1.3

The University recognises the impa
ct its estates and operations have on the
environment and is committed to minimising its environmental impacts in a
manner which is sustainable, and is currently working through the
EcoCampus Environmental Management System (EMS). The EMS is being
implemen
ted across the University estate and aims to ensure the University
embeds best practice in carbon and environmental management. The
University achieved the Silver Phase of the

scheme in April 2010 and is

currently working towards achieving the Gold Phase.

Responsible and
sustainable waste management is considered within the scope of the EMS, in
addition to other environmental impacts such as energy and water
consumption, carbon emissions, sustainable procurement and biodiversity
management. Within the Univ
ersity’s commitment to sustainable
CANTERBURY CHRIST CHURCH UNIVERSITY

development, CCCU has clear aspirations to improve waste management
performance. Through the University’s main waste contract, a recycling rate
of approximately 27% has been achieved and the University has set clear
aspir
ations to increase its recycling performance and increasingly divert
waste from landfill.


2

What is Waste?

Waste can be defined as:


“Any substance or object the holder discards intends to discard or is required
to discard”.

That people (students, staff
and visitors) produce waste is a fact of life we
cannot change although every effort will be made to reduce, reuse, recycle
and recover materials. However, we can change how much we produce, how
we manage it and what we do with it. Indeed, managing waste i
n a
sustainable way,

optimising

recycling and re
-
use, as well as limiting
production, forms a core part of University Environmental Policy to protect
the environment.


2.1

This Waste Management Strategy outlines
plans to put
in place to help us
reach our savings targets and the support in place to manage our waste more
effectively and explains how everyone (students, staff and visitors) can play a
part in ensuring we work together towards a future much less reliant on
sending
vast amounts of waste to landfill.

Waste Streams Assessment


The University Waste streams are categorised as follows:




General and
Household Waste


waste from
residential
accommodation
.



Commercial W
aste


waste from
all buildings.



Clinical W
aste



Hazardous Waste

CANTERBURY CHRIST CHURCH UNIVERSITY

Appendix
1

provides an overview by campus location of the relevant waste
streams produced across the campus network.


4

Vision


In line with the University’s Waste

and Resource

Management Policy

(Appendix
4
)
, the University commits to “Managing all waste in a sustainable
and responsible manner and to ensuring the continuous improvement of its
waste and resource management performance”.


T
hese aims will

be achieved by:




Establishing clear recycling and waste
prevention targets:


o

Recycle
50%
of all waste
by August 2013, and 75% by 2017

o

Reduce Waste to Landfill
to 10% by August 2013, and 5
%
by 201
7

o

Reuse 10
% of our waste by 2017




Establishing a Waste

and Resource

Management Working Group to
implement the Strategy from Departments creating the relevant w
aste
streams and to meet termly and to review the Strategy and Policy
annually.




Establish
ing

a network of Building Environmental Champions that will help
to implem
ent the Strategy across the campus network.




Provid
ing

guidance and procedures on aspects of strategy implementation
to all relevant students and staff.




Work
ing

in partnership with the contracted Waste Management Company
to ensure optimum performance.




Un
dertak
ing

6 monthly audits of the main waste contractor

and periodic
internal audits of practices

to ensure legal compliance and best practice is
achieved and plan corrective actions as necessary.

Purpose of the Strategy

CANTERBURY CHRIST CHURCH UNIVERSITY

8


This Waste and
Resource

Management Strategy presents a
n implementation
plan

by
the
University for the sustainable management of its waste
.


6

Links with
W
i
der Strategies and Initiatives

T
his Strategy
has
links

with other strategic plans and initiatives such as the

University Strategic Plan,

EcoCampus Environmental Management System, the
Estates Strategy, the Facilities Strategy, the Environmental and Sustainability
Policy and the University’s Carbon Management Plan.

7

Costs

for Sustainable Waste Management



a.

E
xtern
al
research and analysis points to the fact that the direct costs
of waste management, i.e. the costs incurred through the use of
waste contractors, are actually the tip of the iceberg in terms of the
‘true’ cost

to an organisation
. Although estimates var
y due to
specific
sectorial

and industrial issues, the true costs of waste
management are quite staggering for an organisation of the
University’s scale. Some reports estimate that the actual waste
costs can account for
up to
4% of turnover which, in the
University’s
case, equates to over £
5

million. Other reports suggest that the
‘true’ costs could be between 5 to 20 times the direct waste costs.
Based on the available recent figures, this could equate to between
£900,000 and £3.6 million in annual ‘was
tage’. These values do
not include the costs associated with all the University’s
construction waste, which are also lik
ely to be significant.


b.

From 2012 most Local Authorities will charge for municipal waste
collections. Councils can legally charge
customers for the disposal
of household waste which includes waste collected from some areas
of the University’s estate such as the waste collections from Parham
Road Student Village by Canterbury City Council and the collections
from Salomon’s by Tunbridg
e Wells Borough Council. This would
directly impact the University waste management costs for areas
where Councils are undertaking collections.


c.

Landfill tax represents the most significant driver for improving
resource efficiency and therefore reducing wa
ste sent to landfill.
CANTERBURY CHRIST CHURCH UNIVERSITY

9


Landfill Tax stands at £64 per tonne (April 2012). The Tax is also
set to further increase by £8 per tonne per annum until at least
2014/2015 where it will reach £80 per tonne. There is no
indication from the Government that this w
ill be capped at £80 per
tonne and therefore it is possible that it could continue to increase.


d.

From the University waste summaries the proportion of spend on
Landfill tax between May 2010 and April 2011 the University
disposed of 703 tonnes of waste to l
andfill. This equated to an
annual spend of approximately £33,750 on Landfill Tax in this
period (at the 2010 rate of £48 per tonne) and if the University
disposes of a similar amount of waste to landfill in 2011/2012 it
will spend circa £40,000 on Landfi
ll tax alone.


e.

Due to fuel and logistic costs increasing, which will have additional
impact on both disposal and collection charges, the University
strategic options will target the prevention and reduction of waste
generation leading to a more self
-
suffic
ient approach to waste
management in the long term. In addition, rising processing costs
and gate fees for waste management facilities are also contributing
to these rising waste costs, and the strategy for sustainable waste
management will focus on reduc
ing dependence on contractor
management and maximise options to reduce waste.


f.

Formal rebates are not currently provided on any of the materials
collected by the main contractor but are included as part of the
overall cost/pricing structure of the contrac
t. For the new contract
to be let in August 2012, the University will seek to have formal
rebate payments separately identified and credited back. Any new
waste contractor will be required to identify rebates available for
waste streams e.g. paper, cardbo
ard, glass, metals etc.



Drivers

and Legislation

for Waste Management


g.

Waste management in the
UK

and the wider
EU

is rapidly evolving
and there are numerous pieces of legislation which af
f
ect the
University.

CANTERBURY CHRIST CHURCH UNIVERSITY

10



h.

The
W
aste (England and Wales) Regulations
2011 which came into
force on 29
th

March 2011 implement
ed

the revised Waste
Framework Directive
. Th
is
legislation
introduced a number of new
requirements including the requirement to declare in the
University
Waste Strategy

that we have applied the principles of the Waste
Hierarchy to the management of the University waste streams.
The
Waste Strategy
must also demonstrate that
we
have considered
alternative management options to landfill disposal

with waste
prevention as the

most preferable management options, followed by
preparing for reuse, recycling, recovery and energy recovery
management options.


i.

Legal compliance is a core driver for sustainable waste
management. It is imperative that
the University
understand
s

its
legal requirements and manage
s

its
operations in accordance with
its
‘Duty of Care’ in order to manage risk of prosecution and
environmental damage
.

Figure
below

summarises the key items of
legislation that theUniversity must comply with.

Education and Reputation

T
he
University recognises the importance of responsible waste management
and that developing and implementing the Waste Management Strategy will
CANTERBURY CHRIST CHURCH UNIVERSITY

11


provide an educational example to staff and students. It will also
demonstrate good environmental performance to al
l University
stakeholders.


9

Environmental Performance


The Waste Management Strategy aims to reduce the environmental impacts
of resource consumption and landfill waste, including pollution risks and
the release of greenhouse gases and supports the University EcoCampus
Environmental Management System.


10

Nationa
l
Waste
Strategy

The
University Waste

Strategy
takes account of t
he Defra Waste Strategy for
England 2007 and other related documents and reports.
The University
Waste Strategy has been developed with

its aims and objectives
reflecting

the growing importance of sustainable waste management and the Waste
Hierarchy within England

including t
he governmental pressures for
organisations to consider the sustainability of their own waste management.

11

Key Principles of Sustainable Waste Mana
gement

The University
working to the Waste Hierarchy
has a long term aim to
strive
to
achieve Zero Waste

to landfill

in partnership with its Waste Contractors.
Included as a key principle

within the Waste

Management contract there is a
requirement that the

appointed Waste Contractors will offer
initiatives that
would work alongside existing strategies to
strive to ach
ieve Zero Waste
to
landfill
by 2017.

a.

The Waste Hierarchy is the cornerstone for European best practice
waste management and is adopted as the main approach within the
University Waste Strategy. The Waste Hierarchy prioritises options
according to their environmental and economic impact, wher
e the
prevention of waste is seen as the most favourable management
option, whilst disposal to landfill is deemed the least favourable
management option. Where possible, the University is following the
principles of the Waste Hierarchy when managing its w
aste by
prioritising the prevention and reuse of waste, followed by recycling
and recovery, and finally viewing disposal as the least desirable
option.

Prevention.

We will take an integrated approach to waste prevention,
re
-
use and recycling. Absolute prevention of waste is in many areas
unrealistic but we will prioritise prevention while seeking to re
-
use
and recycle as much as possible of the waste.



Preparing fo
r Re
-
use/Reduction.

Waste re
-
use/reduction or
minimisation is not going to reduce waste output to zero. The re
-
use
of products or materials that would otherwise become waste provide a
range of social, economic and environmental benefits. The University
w
ill seek assistance from voluntary and community organisations
(British Heart Foundation) that have pioneered many of the services
that are widespread today, such as the re
-
use of furniture and
computers.



Recycling & Composting.
Recycling is the way ever
y individual within
the University can help the environment every day. As a University we
currently achieve on average a 25% recycling rate with the target to
increase to 40% recycling rate by December 2012. The University will
raise awareness through wast
e awareness initiatives to encourage our
students, staff and visitors to appropriately use the numerous
recycling facilities available across the campus network and to work in
partnership with our waste contractors to achieve our recycling target.

CANTERBURY CHRIST CHURCH UNIVERSITY

13




Other Re
covery (Incl Energy Recovery)

Government supports efficient energy recovery from residual waste
which delivers environmental benefits, reduce carbon impacts and
provide economic opportunities. Our aim, as part of the Waste
Strategy, is to ensure that with
the support of our partner Waste
Contractors, we get the most energy out of genuinely residual waste
not to get the most waste into energy recovery. Anaerobic digestion
offers a positive solution to food waste and again as part of the
partnership agreemen
t with the Waste Contractors we will aim to
develop an anaerobic digestion strategy.



Disposal.

The Government's aim is to regulate in a way that minimises
burdens on business, whilst securing outcomes which maximise
resource efficiency and protect the env
ironment and human health
and therefore reduce waste landfill.

11

Baseline Data


a.

I
n order to track past trends and make future predictions

it is
important to record centrally,
information and data on waste
generation and management methods
including
the costs of waste
management at the University.



b.

In terms of presenting data production and expenditure data

at the
time of the Waste Audit in August 2011

it was noted that
the
University was receiving limited data from many of its waste
contractors.


c.

As the new contract
(August 2012)
is implemented and monitoring
data is improved this
data
section
will be
developed

and updated at
the annual review
process.



12

Strategy Timeline and Targets
