Collection of confidential shredding

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 6:46 am

Requesting bags and the collection of shredding:

Can staff please put items that they require to be shredded in to the designated shredding bags, the bags can now be requested on Planet.

https://planetfm.essex.ac.uk/PlanetPortal/

Security will collect the shredding bags and take them to The Gateway Building loading bay for shredding – but this also needs to be requested via Planet please.

Please note the recent feedback from Estates is that they have collected a lot of shredding bags which have contained items such as empty coffee cups and folders – which are obviously not supposed to be in there.  Please ensure the bags are only full of shredding.

All items of shredding MUST be secured inside a shredder bag.



Green Impact – Recycling Crisp Packets

Filed under: Southend Bulletin — Nicola Paine @ 5:39 am

 

 University staff in The Forum are trialling a collection point (in the tea point) to collect empty crisp packets for recycling as part of the Walkers recycling scheme (www.walkers.co.uk/recycle).  It accepts crisp packets from any brand as long as they’re empty.  When we have enough, we’ll be forwarding them to a local collection point.  After cleaning, packets are shredded and used to make other plastic products such as outdoor furniture, trays and flooring.  If you’re setting up a collection point in your area, let Zoe know (zmann@essex.ac.uk) so we can collate packets before forwarding.
