Our commitment to the environment has been strong since day one and we continuously find ways to reuse or recycle.
For the past eight years we have been recycling our printer and copier toner cartridges through Close the Loop. We have collection boxes in the IT Support Centre, E-Block Print Hub Room and the Administration Office near the main printer.
Close the Loop are champions of the circular economy and the re-use of recovered materials, such as printer and toner cartridges, is core to their values. These values align closely with ours here at Hillbrook.
Our toner waste becomes TonerPave™ a product they have developed through their innovation centre.
From 1 July 2019 to 30 September 2019 we contributed to saving the equivalent of 68 elephants worth of toner and cartridges from landfill. This provided 31.97 km of road surface! You can see our latest certificate here.
