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.

Download our General Waste Poster to help reduce confusion of what goes in which bin.

Food Waste:

Food caddies have been provided to occupiers working in our multi-occupied buildings. This allows occupiers to dispose of all food waste into a caddy which is then emptied into a separate food waste wheelie bin, located in the bin compound areas.

The food collected from Green Park gets taken to an Anerobic Digestion facility where it organically breaks down in the absence of oxygen and produces biogas and soil improver which is used in the agriculture industry.

Glass Recycling:

Recycle your glass bottles and jars in our dedicated glass recycling bins located at each of our multi-occupied buildings*.

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 work 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 Front of House Team at 100 Longwater Avenue.

Battery Disposal:

Batteries must be disposed of separately. There are battery boxes at each of our multi-occupied buildings* across the park. Please speak with the building Front of House representative for more information.

Toner & Ink Cartridge Recycling:

Most brands of toner have a recycling scheme which will allow you to send back empty toners directly to them. For further information, please visit the brands website.


Clothing Disposal:

Did you know that an estimated £140 million worth of used clothing goes to waste every year – that’s around 350,000 tonnes! Binned clothes fill up landfill sites, raise greenhouse gas emissions, and harm the environment. That’s why we have a Salvation Army charity clothing and shoes recycling bin located at bin compound of 100 Longwater Avenue.

Future Initiatives:

Here at Green Park, we’re always looking for new recycling initiatives. If you have any suggestions, please get in touch at
