Waste Management

A significant portion of a building’s carbon footprint is created by tenant waste so waste management is a priority at Samson. The Environment Champion is responsible for educating colleagues and cleaners on waste processes, if the Champion has any questions regarding the content included below they should contact Celia@samson.co.nz 

Anvil is striving towards being a zero landfill building and each tenancy should be separating their waste into the Council recycling and general waste and the compost provided on site. The Environment Champion is responsible for educating colleagues and cleaners on waste education processes.

 


Compost – each tenancy has a small green bin for worm waste. Tenants need to line their bin with a compostable bag liner and when it is full they need to dispose of it in the collection bin beside the worm bins. Note: tenants do not put the compost in the worm bin themselves, this is left to the maintenance team.

Compostable bags can be ordered online from http://www.friendlypak.co.nz/Products/Bag-Pak/Bin-Liners
