We're trying to keep our environmental footprint to a minimum. Here's what we can recycle in the lab/at Summerhall:
|Material||Location in the lab||Final destination|
|Glass||Blue box in the G1 kitchen area||Glass bins in the Summerhall courtyard|
|Cans, plastics, paper, card and cardboard (see below)||The green box in the G1 kitchen area||Red-lidded “Dry mixed recyclables” bins in the courtyard|
|WEEE (electricals/electronics)||Box marked “WEEE” (TODO: box and location to be determined)||A member will periodically take the WEEE to the local recycling centre|
|Tassimo coffee pods/packaging||Bin behind Tassimo machine||Ship to Terracyle (ask Al for details)|
Other waste unfortunately has to be landfilled, unless we can find other recycling solutions. There are black-lidded landfill bins in the Summerhall courtyard.
If you see the in-lab recycling is full, please empty it to the bins in the courtyard. The same goes for the landfill bins in the lab!
