[recently published internal memorandum]
Bank of Ireland have achieved their target to recycle 80% of all waste generated in their Head Office in Baggot Street.
They began recycling waste in June 2003 and for the past 8 months they have recycled :-
* 62 tonnes of cardboard - the equivalent of 992 trees.
* 83.33 tonnes of paper.
* Saved 1,720 cubic metres of landfill.
They now plan to improve waste segregation at source to improve things further and cut the costs of recycling.
There are NO under-desk rubbish bins in any of the three buildings; staff have no choice but to recycle all waste.
Here's hoping other organisations follow suit.
