Oxford Race not Waste

We are once again looking for your support as Senior Members of Boat Clubs to help us reduce waste and particularly to eliminate single-use plastic at Summer Eights.  Our focus is on the island and the meadow.  Most of you have now installed  an external lockable water tap outside your boat houses and you have agreed to purchase from Select Environmental Waste a set of recycling bins which will soon be delivered to your Boat House – thank you!  An invoice for the bins will be sent to you in due course.  Please supply your own waste bin bags so that your Boatman and Boat Club captains or staff can change the bags regularly throughout Summer Eights (60 litre big bags required). 

It would make a huge difference if you can get the message to all your students, staff and alumni:

·Everyone who can brings a re-usable cup to the event, refills it there and takes it away with them

·Anyone who can’t do that has drinks served in cups that aren’t plastic – unbleached non lined paper is BEST

·Any waste that is generated is properly separated out into the marked bins so we can deal with it properly

·Put this message on your website and social media accounts –enlist your Communications officer to help with this

·Put the attached poster on notice boards around your college.
