- Paper, magazines, newspapers, envelopes
- Cardboard
- Polystyrene
- Electronic equipment
- Printer and Toner cartridges
- Glass bottles
- Plastic bottles and food containers
- Milk cartons
- Aluminium cans
- Light bulbs and fluorescent lamps
- Batteries
- Scrap Metal

 

Each building occupant is expected to do his/her part in order to ensure that as little waste as possible is produced in the building.

Throughout the building,waste management measures have been implemented and they include the following:

  • Separate recycle bins as well as an organic waste bin have been provided in each kitchenette/pause areas. Staff should use the pause areas when eating or drinking in order to comply with the house rules and to participate in correct recycling practices at the source. In order to avoid cross contamination of office waste, cleaning staff will use separate bags to collect waste from the respective receptacles and will then take the waste to the recycling waste storage facility located in basement -1.
  • Other recycle bins for paper have been located at regular intervals throughout the office space including photocopy/print areas. Please note that separate bins have also been provided in photocopy/print areas for the disposal of empty toner cartridges and batteries.
  • Private waste bins have also been provided at each desk but these will strictly be for disposing of organic waste that cannot be recycled. Cleaning staff with empty all private bins on a daily basis.
  • The waste management strategy for the occupied building is aiming for 50% of waste to be re-directed from landfill in accordance with the waste reuse, recycle and reduce policy.
