Waste Management

A significant portion of a building’s carbon footprint is created by tenant waste, maximising the diversion of waste from landfill 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 Samson.

When you are the sole tenant of a building you will be designated Auckland Council recycling and waste bins in most circumstances (contact Samson to confirm what the current arrangement is for your building).

No business is the same and many produce more of some waste streams than others, in these circumstances we expect that tenants contract their own additional collection services. For example:

  • Retaurants and food producers should get an additional We Compost collection,
  • Bars should get additional glass recycling, and 
  • Those that use a lot of packaging should get additional cardboard and soft plastic recycling.

Any additional bins onsite must be kept within your tenancy or you must get prior permission from Samson to keep it in a common area.
