Reducing waste and our contribution to landfill

Getting recycling bins for soft plastics and clean lab waste

Labs generate a lot of waste (eg soft plastic packaging from deliveries, batteries, foam eskies from deliveries). There are companies that will recycle these items (eg Cleanaway, Redcycle, Kimberley Clark, Terracycle, Expanded Polystyrene Australia, Foamex). Some of these companies provide recycling bins and a pickup service, so it would be fantastic to partner with these companies so that we could recycle this waste instead of putting it into landfill.
