This paper utilises Appraisal Theory to critically analyse staff perceptions, aspirations, expectations and practices of recycling in an Australian regional university. The analysis focuses attention on the lexico-grammatical resources that participants used to manage interpersonal meaning in semistructured interviews. The analysis is framed within the context of Education for Sustainability in the Higher Education sector.
