Dear Lancaster University,

I read 'Recovery of up to 30% of waste (primarily biodegradable materials) is anticipated to commence soon. This material will be separated and treated at a specialist off-site treatment facility to produce an organic soil type material, suitable for forestry use.'
on this website https://www.lancaster.ac.uk/sustainabili...

I wish to know:
1. May I know what kind of facilities is this: Is it a composting facility, waste to energy facility etc. Does it accept food waste, or just gardening waste? According to my knowledge, the Lancaster town council replied saying there is no food waste recovery facility around Lancaster and there isn't a plan to build any soon. Is this facility going to be used as a food recovery facility?
2.When will it be completed?
3.Is it privately owned or university owned? How is it funded?
4.Where is it located?

I also wish to know how much money the university gives Green Lancaster as funding each year? How much of it goes to EcoHub the society to run the garden.

How much money is spent on maintaining the university ground, in terms of fertiliser? And what types of fertiliser are used?

Yours faithfully,
Karen Ma

Dear Karen,

 

Many thanks for submitting a Freedom Of Information request.

 

Due to the University focussing its resources towards our response to the
current pandemic, there may be possibilities of some delays to requests,
and in most cases we are unable to meet the 20 day timescale. The ICO have
released some guidance for applicants which explains that they will not be
taking regulatory action against organisations who cannot meet the
statutory timescales linked to both FOI requests and information rights
requests made under the GDPR, during the current public health crisis.

Please be assured that we fully intend to respond to all requests but we
hope you can understand that the University has more pressing priorities
at this difficult time.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience caused

 

Best wishes,

 

The Information Governance Team

Lancaster University
