I’ll make sure to always throw my rubbish in the bin

Doyle Brother's Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) - a facility that successfully recovers massive quantities of recyclable/reusable material that would traditionally go straight to land fill. It recovers over 75% of all material it receives from our campus bins for reuse.

Even though we have a system that gives us great outcomes, litter that doesn't end up in our bins can end up in our creeks or in the lake, and can have devastating impacts on the plants and wildlife. You can help keep Macquarie clean and green in two ways:

  1. Avoid creating waste in the first place by using reusable cups, bottles, bags, containers and cutlery.
  2. When you see litter on campus:
    • Snap It on Instagram
    • Tag It #litterati and #waste_type (e.g. #litterati #plastic, By using these hashtags, you will be actively helping us to identify problem spots for us to manage.)
    • Bin It to keep our campus clean and green.
