Dear University of the Arts London,

I would like to know how many units of single use plastic items have been used in October 2018:

-single use plastic coffee cups/lids
-single usesalad containers
-single use plastic cutlery
-any other single use plastic items

Please break down the results for each individual campus. Please also tell me if any of the overall amounts of waste have been omitted due to private establishments on UAL property.

Please can I also know how much non-recyclable waste has been generated also. I would like the same time frame and breakdown for this information as mentioned above.

I would also like to know what the university is doing, if anything, to try and reduce this expenditure and to reduce the use of single use plastics, and waste as a whole.

Yours faithfully,

Bishy B
