Waste Directives

You've probably already spotted them and are already using them but, in case not, you'll find various recycling bins for metal cans, plastic bottles and batteries throughout the building including the Kitchen on the 4th Floor, the Ashby Foyer and just outside the Ashby Canteen. 


The waste hierarchy states that you should always try to reduce the amount of waste material you generate in preference to reusing it or recycling it and a considerable amount of waste is created through single sided printed and copying.  Duplex printing should therefore be selected where possible and practicable.  


Anyone wishing to recycle books in good condition in aid of charity might be interested to learn that they may be donated to an organization called Better World Books by contacting the Estates Directorate.  For further information please click here.
