Pen Recycling Bins or Collections

Extra Information: It would be helpful to have collection points or bins around the campuses so that pens which no longer have enough ink to work can be recycled. Many primary and secondary schools around Bristol and South Gloucestershire have these collection points, so it should be relatively easy to set up. This can help students, staff, and the university as a whole to work towards being more environmentally sustainable. I'm sure that many students and staff throw away pens pretty frequently, and all of this waste could be reduced by having collections/drop-off points for these pens
