Environmental Issues

Manchester Student Homes works with students, university departments and partnership agencies such as Manchester City Council, Biffa and Viridor on waste and recycling. 

Campaigns include:



'Give it don’t bin it' is a student move-out collection and recycling campaign. Every year thousands of students move out of their residence and we are encouraging students to make their move count by donating unwanted items. This is a partnership campaign between Manchester Student Homes, The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan Universitand Manchester City Council.




The Living Labs Project, which began in September 2018, aims to research students' waste and recycling habits, in an off-campus setting. Luke, MSH's Community Cohesion Intern and Florence, the Student Community Advisor, work in partnership with Manchester City Council, to support students in their understanding of responsible management of waste and recycling, whilst observing patterns and behaviours, to identify areas for growth.


The project focuses on two streets: Granville Road in Fallowfield and Brighton Grove in Rusholme. The team conduct regular audits  of the identified areas and the student household is kept informed of the project's progress. Those involved in the pilot engage and contribute by highlighting areas of concern and how they can be supported. 

The Living Labs blog will provide valuable information and advice on bettering waste management and increasing recycling rates in the local area, in addition to updates on the project itself.

Manchester recycling week


Manchester Student Homes is supporting the University of Manchester’s Manchester Recycling Week which runs from the 13th-19th November.

The week aims to raise awareness about the importance of recycling and why more needs to be done.

Off campus areas such as Fallowfield recycle almost 50% of their waste and Old Moat recycles over 60%. Over 70% of all waste can be recycled so please help us to make a difference both on campus and off campus and recycle as much as possible.

varsity recycling event

On the 22nd of March 2017, Manchester Metropolitan University went head to head with the University of Manchester in a battle of environmentalism to see who is the greenest university of them all.  

Amidst the pouring rain and adverse weather conditions the students came out in force and full of enthusiasm to clean the streets of Fallowfield and Withington, in the process filling 9 large sacks of litter – 6 of which were filled with recyclable materials such as plastic bottles, cans, cartons, paper, and glass jars and bottles. This made a huge difference to the appearance and ecology of the areas.

Libby Turner, University of Manchester student and Fallowfield resident, said "The litter pick allowed the green areas to breathe and streets to shine again on an otherwise dark and rainy day. I really hope the great work done here today by all of the volunteers and Manchester Student Homes will encourage people to volunteer in the local community and take responsibility for their rubbish”.

It was a close run battle but at the close of play the University of Manchester came out winners with a total of 6 sacks, winning food vouchers for the Friendship Inn, Tesco and 256.

Manchester Student Homes would like to thank all of those who took part, our partnership agencies and both universities for their continuing support with off-campus issues such as waste and recycling. Manchester Student Homes will continue to work with partnership agencies such as Manchester City Council and Biffa to ensure that environmental issues within the community are taken seriously and acted upon via waste and recycling initiatives.

Manchester Student Homes also undertakes weekly community audits and would be happy to hear from you if you are concerned with litter in your local area.

Community Spring Clean


On Friday 3rd of March, the Student Community Advisors spent the morning with a wonderful group of volunteers, picking up litter within the Fallowfield and Withington area. The group included Manchester Student Homes’ (MSH) Housing Caseworker Shirley, and Community Cohesion Intern Vinny. There were also MSH Landlords, Residents and representatives from Manchester City Council who were all excited to get stuck into the project.

This venture is part of Manchester Student Homes’ ongoing waste and recycling campaign, which also includes other successful operations such as delivering bin caddies, completing recycling surveys and a recent varsity litter pick. MSH has recognised that there is a significant problem with waste in student areas.

The group managed to fill quite a great deal of bags during the event, and it was encouraging to see students taking notice of the work that was being done. The event also seemed to act as a reminder for students to be more conscious of their waste and recycling habits.

Manchester Student Homes works continuously to educate students about proper waste and recycling habits and that they have a responsibility of keeping the area they live in as clean and presentable as possible. This event highlighted how it is clear that we must work together to make a difference, and that any contribution will impact the health of our community.

The event was extremely successful and many participants commented on how satisfying it was contributing to the project. It was tremendously rewarding to see the extent of the rubbish collected and the streets looked fantastic afterwards.

It is fantastic to see so many members of the local community taking part in a project that impacts all the residents of Fallowfield. This event highlights the genuine commitment Manchester Student Homes has in tackling waste and promoting recycling with our partners” – Cooper Healey, Manager of Manchester Student Homes
