Bucks Students' Union have helped the Multi-Faith Chaplaincy team with the Bucks New Usage scheme; a fantastic green initiative which sees unwanted home ware items going to good use.

Bucks New Usage is an initiative where we collect unwanted and left items from halls and recycle them to our new students. International students can particularly benefit from this as they have a limited luggage allowance and this allows them to save money on new items.

If you want to donate to the usage, please contact multifaithchaplaincy@bucks.ac.uk or leave your blue bag in halls ready for collection!

Bucks New Usage Statistics

You can see some of the statistics from the Bucks New Usage below:

Bucks Green Society has become heavily involved with the Bucks New Usage Scheme.

Kia Wing, Green Society Chair has said, "As a successful initiative that the university was already running, we thought it was a good idea to celebrate it by giving the chaplaincy a hand with organising and cleaning.

Recycling isn’t the answer to the Climate Crisis that we are in, and we think that the world is getting caught up by this myth. The way to really cut down on the waste we create as a society is to reuse what we already have!

We need to be giving old plates new life, refreshing old clothes, or loving pre-loved mugs... if we really want to be Earth-friendly. We need to stop creating, and start appreciating."
