Recycling in Apartments
Sort it! Bin it! Chute it!
Welcome to your new recycling chutes
As part of the refurbishments we are making it easier for you to recycle in order to reduce the amount of rubbish we send to landfill. Each apartment has three bins in the kitchen where you can to store your items to recycle before taking them to the chute. If you do not have these bins please contact Pendleton Together on 0300 555 5567.
Your 3 step guide to recycling
In your apartment there are three bins for you to separate your rubbish.
These are for:
• non-recyclable waste
Put non-recyclable waste in a tied bin liner and recyclables directly into the bin. When your bin gets full carry it from your apartment to the recycling chute located in the corridor.
On each floor there is a chute. It is for paper/cardboard, glass/ plastic/tin and non recyclable waste (any glass and plastic that is put into chutes are bottles)
The chute buttons
You will see a number of different buttons on the control panel. You need to press the right button for the waste you wish to deposit down the chute. This will make sure that your recycling goes into the correct bin in the bin storage area.
If the green light is on it means that the chute door is open and it is OK to put your recycling in.
If the red light is on, it means the chute is in use by somebody on another floor. Please wait until the light is off before using the chute.
