Academic libraries can take a proactive position in adopting sustainable strategies for consumption and production of content and materials relating to work and study.
Recycling of obsolete resources
Lyndelle Gunton, Manager (Education Support)
USQ Library has made a strong commitment to the USQ objectives around environmental sustainability. In organising for items to be recycled that are obsolete and no longer needed to support learning and teaching and research, we have diverted more than 80,000 items out of landfill. This actively contributes to USQ’s environmental commitment.
Campus libraries provide collection boxes for waste such as used batteries in addition to different receptacles for recyclable waste and landfill.
