Exchange Tower has recently introduced organics in January 2020.

What you need to do? Three easy steps:  


 Organics
Organics

  1. Purchase a dedicated bin for organics. Ideally this should be the same as your three bin system (please see above).  For those with under bench desk systems you may wish to place signage on the front of the bin or on the bench top itself.  The bin needs to be clearly marked as organic. 
      
  2. Educate your staff on what goes into this bin, please see attached signage.  
      
  3. Place a work order to the cleaners confirming you wish to commence organic waste.

           This is a new process for the building so feedback on how this is going,
           improvements, etc. will be welcomed. Feedback to be emailed to
           management@exchangetower.com.au
