Sadly scientific research generates a very large amount of waste and as we have to use a large amount of non-reusable plastics for our work. We comply fully with the waste disposal procedures of the Univeristy and the John Radcliffe Hospital so much of this waste is treated as a biohazard.

However, where possible we try to source consumables from companies that offer their own recycling facilities. In addition we try to recycle packaging from our suppliers by returning polystyrene 'igloos' and boxes through the post. We also participate in a printer cartridge recycling scheme which sees extra money raised for the CF Trust.
