Additional Collections (Sacks)

Where a department or faculty require an additional collection of confidential waste, confidential sacks can be requested from security on each campus. Additional sacks will be collected on the normal collection dates as per above and the charge will be £3 per sack. A PO request will need to be completed (See attached) and sent to Estates Security for processing. Please note that your request for additional sacks to be collected will need to be sent to Estates Security at least 3 days prior to collection dates. Any request made later than 3 days prior will be picked up on the following collection date.

Large amounts of additional confidential waste sacks will need to be collected outside of the scheduled collection dates. Any ad hoc collections will incur an additional £20 collection charge on top of the £3 per sack collection. Quantities above 20 sacks will incur this charge.

Confidential waste sacks are to be kept in the room that the waste was collected from or placed in a secure room (where available) until the collection date. Please state clearly on the PO request which room the confidential waste is located and needs to be collected from.
