Toroa and the Environment

Toroa’s commitment to the environment

We actively recycle, conserve water and save resources by turning off lights and electrical equipment when not in use. We also help out with sustainability in the community wherever we are needed.We aer committed to sustainability and we actively promote and take part in the University's Green Your Scene Campaign

Public Commitment 1


We encourage and provide communal facilities for recycling of paper, cardboard, glass, cans, batteries, egg cartons and other products.

Our composting bins allow you to reduce the amount of food waste you send to the landfill.


Take it or leave it

Take It or Leave It is Toroa's freecycling scheme - where you can place your unwanted goods so that others may reuse them - and of course you can help yourself to something that might be of use to you.

Our worm farm

Toroa is home to thousands of wriggly worms - housed nicely in our worm farm. Known for their voracious appetite, Toroa's worms happily feed themselves on our food scraps, turning them into compost.
