Recycling and Waste Management

Green Park have introduced a number of initiatives to help manage and reduce the waste produced in the multi-occupied buildings* across the Park.

Office Waste

General Waste and Dry Mixed Recycling bins have introduced throughout each of the buildings to help manage and reduce the waste produced in the multi-occupied buildings. 

General Waste and Mixed Recycling posters have been created for Occupiers to help make recycling easy and reduce confusion over what goes in which bin.  If you have a food caddy for the wormery (see below), please use this general waste poster.

Food Waste

Food caddy's are available to Occupiers who would like to dispose of their food waste in the wormery, located at 100 Longwater Avenue. The worms enjoy a varied diet of tea bags and coffee granules, fruit peel and left over pizza to name just a few. A full list of items that can be disposed of in the Green Park Wormery can be found on our Food Caddy/Wormery poster.
   

Used ink and toner cartridges

We are currently able to offer recycling of used ink and toner cartridges at each of our managed buildings.  These are collected by an organisation that donates the proceedings from the toners to charity.  For ease of collection, we ask that the toners are sealed and placed in a box.  If you have more than ten toners, we maybe able to arrange a collection directly from your office.  Please contact Summreen, Green Parks Sustainability Coordinator, to arrange collection.

WEEE Waste

Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment’ must be disposed of separately.  This includes anything that has a plug or needs power to work.  It includes equipment parts, cables / wires and telephones.

For items that are in good working order, Green Park is in partnership with Connect Reading to donate items to local charities before they are disposed of in the WEEE bin.

Located at 100 Longwater Avenue is a WEEE Waste bin where Occupiers can dispose of any unusable electrical equipment.  If you have items to donate or dispose of in other buildings, please contact Summreen.

Batteries

These must be disposed of separately.  Please contact Summreen, if you have batteries that need to be disposed of. 

Clothing

We also have a Salvation Army charity clothing and shoes recycling bin at 100 Longwater Avenue.  This is located in the bin compound.

Other waste

Connect Reading are happy to broker items donated from business to local charities.  Please contact Summreen if you have any items to donate.  So far we have donated water bottles, writing pads, a printer, name badges, fan heaters and office desks.

Action Against Breast Cancer

Nvidia, based at 100 Brook Drive, have a bra bin collection, which is part of their charitable support for 'Against Breast Cancer'.  If occupiers would like to make a donation please contact Judi Lewis-Shallow.
