Living green at lulworth
The team at Lulworth Student Company is conscious of environmental issues and we always encourage our students to go green as well. This is why we have compiled some useful information below on navigating your student experience while reducing your carbon footprint.
LSC is committed playing its part in making life a little bit greener. We believe everyone has the power to impact the environment we live in positively. We are encouraging and supporting ideas and help to implement green living improvements.

Bournemouth and Poole Councils have partnered with the operator Beryl Bikes to launch an innovative bicycle sharing scheme. The bikes will be available for instant hire using an app, which tracks the bike’s GPS location to allow users to easily unlock any Beryl bicycle.
Bikes are available at key destinations including easily accessible rail and bus stations, shopping areas in town, and popular tourist attractions.
The Beryl bikes come with three speed gears and a step through design, with seats available for riders ranging from 4’11” to 6’5” in height.
Recycling AT LULWORTH
One of the best ways to be sustainable is by recycling. You will find hundreds of bins across the University campus, so you will be able to recycle plastic sandwich packets, juice cartons, foil, yoghurt pots and more.
You will find separate bins for white paper recycling in computer labs, offices, and open access centres. All of the bins will be clearly labelled for efficiency and ease of use. Food waste is now sent to a local composting site in an attempt to be greener.
If you’re on Talbot or Lansdowne Campus, you can recycle all of your batteries in any of the SUBU shops. When you pay a visit to the Student Union reception area, you will also be able to recycle CDs, mobile phones, ink cartridges, glasses, sunglasses, and more!
